Many UGC recognised private universities are refusing to provide information under the RTI act by claiming that section 2(F) is not applicable to them. Many also get injunctions from courts and refuse to provide information when asked to do so via the UGC. Complaints to the CIC seem to go both ways. Examples of such universities include the Vinayaka Mission, Sikkim Manipal and Others.
The provisions of the RTI act should be applicable to all educational bodies. Any dissent should automatically result in derecognition. I think the act needs to be revised to include this provision.
