As per the Supreme Court judgment (Namit Sharma v/s Union of India), the Information Commissions must work in benches of two members each.
Further, without any peradventure and veritably, we state that appointments of legally qualified, judicially trained and experienced persons would certainly manifest in more effective serving of the ends of justice as well as ensuring better administration of justice by the Commission. It would render the adjudicatory process which involves critical legal questions and nuances of law, more adherent to justice and shall enhance the public confidence in the working of the Commission.
Further the Supreme Court lays down that:
Chief Information Commissioner at the Centre or State level shall only be a person who is or has been a Chief Justice of the High Court or a Judge of the Supreme Court of India.
Supreme Court judges retire at the age of 65.
As per the RTI Act (Section 13 & 16),
Provided that no Chief Information Commissioner shall hold office as such after he has attained the age of sixty-five years
Provided that no State Chief Information Commissioner shall hold office as such after he has attained the age of sixty-five years
