The CIC should take task action on for these blunders Central University of Karnataka. Right to Information (RTI) applicants can complain directly to State Information Commissions (SICs) or Central Information Commission (CICs) if no reply from either Public Information Officers (PIOs) or Appellate Authorities (AAs) has been received within a stipulated time frame. The Kerala High Court had also said that SICs and CICs are entitled and must investigate complaints from RTI applicants if PIOs are not doing their duties. In case they do not, PIOs will be fined to the extent of the number of days they have not responded. Central University of Karnataka has to publish every year the work they carry out or the information they create under 4(1) (a) (b) (c) every day ,but it did not published all the work carried out by the Central University of Karnataka under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) of RTI Act 2005 and it has not provided citizens and opportunity to ask the reasons under section 4(1)(d).

It is mandatory for the concerned public authority to provide reasons for such decisions to the affected persons. It may be done by using appropriate mode of communication .Attention is also invited towards the thread 'affected person ' under rti act.In fact, it can be said that "Affected" refers back to an action. The"Affected Persons" are the ones who are affected by that action. The reasons need to be given to affected person and copy of that can be given to RTI Applicant under 2 f of RTI Act. The CUK office is THE PUBLIC AUTHORITY under obligation to provide information "PUBLICLY” under section 4(1) (a) (b) (c) (d).
