Otherwise also, CPI has always fully responded to all the queries supported with all related documents when put through RTI petitions, even though party does not technically accepts the demand of putting political parties under purview of RTI Act.
Just 13 RTI petitions received by CPI in the year 2013 and two in the year 2014, somewhere also establishes that transparent political parties do not get extra-large number of RTI petitions.
CIC should not accede to any request for deferring compliance of its verdict. CIC should penalise political parties in every possible manner including imposing maximum penalties and recommending Election Commission for cancellation of their registration apart from allowing an exemplary compensation to petitioners especially when maximum penalty imposable is just rupees twenty-five thousand with no limit on allowing compensation.
However, de-registering of political parties for non-compliance of CIC-verdict may be effective from 01.06.2014 to avoid any hindrance in on-going poll-process for a new Lok Sabha.
