    Default IT & Property returns, income tax assessment orders not to be disclosed.


    Central Information Commission

    Decision No.300/IC(A)/2006
    F. Nos.CIC/MA/A/2006/00436
    CIC/MA/A/2006/00488

    Dated, the 22nd September, 2006

    • Name of the Appellant : Sh. Hemant Kumar Jain, Prop. M/s Alpha Exports, 419/B, Panchratna, Opera House,Mumbai – 400 004.
    • Name of the Public Authority: Commissionerate of Income Tax-7(CIT), Room No.611, Aayakar Bhawan, M.K. Road, Mumbai– 400 020.

    DECISION

    1. The appellant sought the following information from the CPIO of the CIT:“the certified copy of the income tax returns, Balance Sheets alongwith annexures and Assessment Orders for financial years 1999-2000, 2000-2001, 2001-2002, 2002-2003, 2003-2004 and 2004-2005 and information,in respect of M/s White Diamond Industries Limited having its PAN No.AAACW0337R, ward No.Adl/JCIT Rg.7(3).”
    2. The CPIO denied to furnish the information on the ground that information sought relate to third party and also there is no public interest involved in disclosure of the information. The appellate authority upheld the decision of the CPIO.
    3. In an umpteen number of cases, the Commission has observed that I.T and property returns filed by persons are personal information of third parties and therefore these should not be disclosed u/s 8(1)(j) of the Act. Likewise, income tax assessment orders, though an outcome of public action, contain both personal details of assessees as well as commercial confidence nature of information. Hence, these documents should not be disclosed u/s 8(1)(d) of the Act.
    4. The appeal is accordingly disposed of.

    What if someone does not want the copy of the IT Return or IT Assessment Order, but only the Income declare in the IT Return and the Assessed Income?

    The same exemption applies to this incident too, as the declaration is in the nature of fiduciary relationship w.r.t. 3rd party application.

    In the event of an RTI applicant seeks information regarding the salary particulars. movable and immovable property of a Public Authority, then can it disclosed. I think the answer should be affirmative. Please deliberate the matter and post some reply by our expert members.

    In the event of not furnishing the information of a Public Authority pertaining to his salarly particulars/income ( say a Govt. servant) how to assess the income whether the same is from the normal source or thourgh certain extraneous methods - like disproportionate to his known source of income.
