    Default Are not Co operative banks covered under RTI


    I have come across divergent inputs w.r.t. to inclusion of the Cooperative banks under RTI act. The inputs have been typically like ...

    input 1 : Co-op Banks not covered by RTI Act, says RBI
    It is not mandatory for co-op banks to give information as not under the perview of the RTI Act
    Apnaloan.com Research Bureau
    10 Aug 2007
    Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has clarified that the co-operative banks are not covered by the Right to Information (RTI) Act 2005.

    Input 2 :
    No immunity from RTI Act, CIC tells co-op bank


    Punjab Chief Information Commissioner R I Singh on Friday again made it explicitly clear to the Punjab State Co-operative Agriculture Development Bank Ltd that it was covered under the RTI Act. The bank had been denying information on the ground that it is not a public authority.

    What is the current status ?
    I am looking for procuring info w.r.t my housing society from Abhyudhaya Bank wherein the society holds an account.
    Information requirement is : whether they have procure the AGM /committee resolution from the client when a new committee was formed and who all were the signatories. I wanted copies of these documents , since I am a member of the society .

    Hence my specific question here is whether Co-operative banks covered under RTI and if yes are there any inputs validating the status .


    regards

    Krishnan

    It depends on a case to case basis.
    Go strictly by the definition of a "public authority" in sec 2(h) of the RTI Act:

    Right to Information Act 2005
