Answer

Correct Option is None of the above

Central Information Commission was established by the Central Government in 2005 under the provisions of the Right to Information Act (2005). Hence, it is a statutory body and not a constitutional body. The Chief Information Commissioner and an Information Commissioner hold office for a term of 3 (as amended by RTI rules 2019) years or until they attain the age of 65 years, whichever is earlier. They are not eligible for reappointment. The salary, allowances, and other service conditions of the Chief Information Commissioner were similar to those of the Chief Election Commissioner and that of Information Commissioner were similar to those of an Election Commissioner. However, with RTI Amendment rule 2019, the determination of salary is now under Central Government. It cannot be varied to his disadvantage during service. Hence statement (4) is correct.
