Cyber Appellate Tribunal to be active again

apna_ad_nov24 has been pursuing with the Government of India about the appointment of the Chair Person for Cyber Appellate Tribunal for over 3 years now. After exhausting all channels during the UPA regime, we had restarted the efforts after the new Government came to power.

At last there is a reply from the Ministry of Information Technology , perhaps because of the nudging by the National Human Rights Commission and the response has been posted on the website

The reply is dated November 20th and states

“You are hereby inform that the requisite pre-appointment formalities for appointment to the post of Chairperson, CAT, have been completed and proposal for appointment is under consideration by the competent authority.”

This response is to a comment posted on 5th September 2014.

Hopefully we may see re activation of the Cyber Appellate Tribunal shortly.
