Correct Option is None of the Above

Right to Information Act of 2005 provides for the creation of not only the Central Information Commission but also a State Information Commission at the state level. 1. State Chief Information Commissioner and State Information Commissioner hold office for a term of 5 years or until they attain the age of 65 years, whichever is earlier. They are not eligible for reappointment. 2. Earlier Salary, allowances, and other service conditions of State Chief Information Commissioner were similar to those of an Election Commissioner and that of the State Information Commissioner are similar to those of Chief Secretary of the state government. But, with amendment act of 2019 removes these provisions and states that the salaries, allowances, and other terms and conditions of service of the central and state CIC and ICs will be determined by the central government. Hence Option (a) is correct.
