CIC pulls up BCI for not following mandatory RTI clause
New Delhi, Apr 17 (PTI) The Central Information Commission has pulled up Bar Council of India for not following mandatory proactive disclosure clause of the RTI Act in connection with information related to inspection of law colleges of India.
"... It is noticed that the Bar Council of India (BCI) has not satisfactorily complied with the section 4(1)(b) requirements. It is a major breach of RTI by prestigious organisation called BCI.
"It is also surprising that they are repeatedly taking a plea that, though they have such information in computer, they have not posted it on website. They have already exhausted 10 years of time in fulfilling this obligation," Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said.Read more at;
