Subsequently, the appellant filed First Appeal on 19.06.2018 with the Director, Health Services, Jammu (DHSJ) who is the First Appellate Authority (FAA) .
Aggrieved with the response of PIO / FAA Finally, the Tidyal filed Second Appeal before the State Information Commission (SIC).
In the said rejoinder, the appellant pointed out certain employees who are being paid two and half day salary without marking their attendance and without performing duties on Sundays and holidays.
