    Dear Kumar

    1. Public Sector (Govt) companies come under RTI.

    2. RTI can be used for obtaining information which is available with PA in any material form.

    For detailed information on how to draft & file an RTI application, please see the "All About RTI" links on the homepage & RTI Guide section of the portal.

    If you have any further doubts, please post them here and our members will be pleased to guide you further.

    Default RTI applicable for JV firm - 55% Private & 45% public


    Hi Friends,

    I just gone thru' the CIC document of LICHFL which had a lot of interpretations for the word 'SUBSTANTIALLY FUNDED' mentioned in the RTI. As I'm not clear on this part, would like to post the below query.

    Whether a private company which has 55% stake by an Foreign MNC and 45% stake by Indian Public sector company which has a JV for the last 3 years can be requeted for information under RTI??

    Regards
    Kumar

    The word "substantial" can mean different things to different people as well as at different times. It cannot be strcitly based on majority/minority holding.

    Apart from substantial, you have to also see who "controls' the entity ?

    Can you share the name of the Company ?

    Recent decision of CIC in SBICards - NSDL - has stated that they are not
    PA even though they have more than 50 % ( or substantial funding ) of govt funds collectively

    Most of psu where CAG conducts audit is PA.
