Thread: Are Private Colleges covered under RTI

  1. Re: Are Private Colleges covered under RTI


    No. Coaching classes are not covered under RTI as they do not fall under the definition of PA. You can't have direct access to their information. All you can do is file an RTI application with ICAI and seek whatever information relating to coaching classes is held by ICAI.
    By the way, so far as my knowledge goes coaching institutes work independently and hardly any information would be held by ICAI.

    Re: Are Private Colleges covered under RTI


    In general, all govt. and private medical, engineering, nursing, pharmacy, and UG/Pg private institutions come under the purview of RTI.

    See

    (I)

    "Public Authority" means any authority or body or institution of self
    government established or constituted-
    a) by or under the constitutions;
    b) by any other law made by Parliament;
    c) by any other law made by State Legislature;
    d) by notification issued or order made by the appropriate
    Government, and includes any-
    i) body owned, controlled or substantially financed;
    ii) non Government organization substantially financed, directly or
    indirectly by funds provided by the appropriate Government.

    Generally all medical, engineering, nursing, pharmacy, and UG/Pg private institutions come under notification issued or order made by the appropriate
    State / central Government "Constituted" by any Govt Act.

    (II)

    Generally all medical, engineering, nursing, pharmacy, and UG/Pg private institutions come under notification issued or order made by the appropriate
    State Government "Constituted" by any State and Central Govt Act.


    "The word "Constituted" does not necessarily mean "created" or "set up"
    though it may mean that also. It also includes the idea of clothing the
    agreement in legal form. The word in its wider significance, word include
    both the idea of creating or establishing and the idea giving a legal form
    to, a partnership/giving legal shape".

    Only recently CIC ruled that deemed universities were public authorities. But it is possible that the concerned deemed university may go to High Court and obtain a stay order.

    Re: Are Private Colleges covered under RTI


    I wanted to know 1 thing about "SUBSTANTIALLY FINANCED". There are some colleges which are called Grant In Aid, these Colleges are owned, run & administered by private societies, but the payment of salary of the staff including the Teaching and non teaching staff is payed by the State Government. A certain percentage of the Fee collected by the college is transferred to the State Governments Salary Payment Account for payment of salary of the staff, the Government puts in its own fund in the salary payment account so that the salary of the staff employed in met with.
    Do such Colleges constitute as "Substantially Financed" because the salary of the staff dosen't come in the Colleges name it is in the name of the staff employed???
