    The Supreme Court today directed the centre to initiate a process to appoint information commissioners in Central Information Commission two months before vacancy arises.

    The key directions, passed by the bench of Justices A K Sikri, Abdul Nazeer, and Subhash Reddy, said that the process to appoint chief information commissioner should be same as in the case of chief election commissioner.

    The bench has also asked the centre to consider eminent citizens, besides bureaucrats for appointment as information commissioners.
