Over 2.55 lakh appeals and complaints were pending on June 30 this year in 26 information commissions. The assessment of the data obtained by voluntary organization Satark Nagrik Sangathan ( SNS ) through RTI shows that 13 commissions would take over one year to dispose of them.

Based on the average monthly disposal rate and the pendency in commissions, it is estimated that Odisha SIC would take as long as six years and eight months to dispose of a matter filed on July 1 this year.
