As per Section 19 (3) when any order is passed by State Information Commission (SIC) for the PIO and First Appellate Authority (FAA) is liable/ obliged to provide the information. Which ever authority holds the requested information should provide the same within stipulated time as per the RTI Act 2005. If the post of PIO is vacant there will be some officer in charge or Assistant Public Information Officer (APIO) must receive reply/information from concerned Department and provide it to Applicant.
If the information is not provided even after the order passed by the SIC, the applicant can file File application to SIC for contempt or file a suit in the respective High Court of the state concerned.

I filed an RTI but there was no response from PIO. Then I filed my first appeal, the Appellant officer issued an order to provide the information sought by me. But no information was provided. Then I filed a second appeal. In the second appeal order again it was directed to provide me the information sought by me or give an affidavit that the information was not available with the PIO. Then I was given improper and misleading information not relevant to my RTI application. What next can I do?
