In 2 years, Rs 1.7 lakh penalty on B'luru South tahsildar

 In the last two years, the Karnataka Information Commission (KIC) has imposed a penalty of Rs 1.73 lakh on Bengaluru South Tahsildar Dr Dayanand, revealed a recent RTI reply by the KIC.

Kalidas Reddy, an RTI applicant, had sought information about two months ago about the total penalty imposed on Dayanand ever since he took over as the Bengaluru South Tahsildar. After two months, the public information officer of the KIC gave him the startling details.

Since 2013, the officer had to cough up Rs 1.73 lakh after he took over as the Bengaluru South Tahsildar, whereas other Tahsildars of Bengaluru have paid Rs 10.45 lakh in the last seven years.

What prompted Reddy to file the RTI application seeking details of the penalty imposed on the Tahsildar was the denial of information about four villages despite the KIC directives.
