Re: Am i eligible to collected IT returns of my wife under RTI act
You cannot get copy of income tax return of your wife. However, you may apply for INCOME TAX ASSESSMENT ORDER of your wife. It IS COVERED UNDER RTI ACT as per decision of CIC in case of Sanjay Lila Bhansali [film director/producer]. This decision was delivered in Mar/Apr 2006. Pl search CIC. Donot desist from filing RTI appln for the fear of not getting the info. At the most CPIO will say No. For guidance pl visit my blog at http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/blogs/...govt-info.html. You have to apply to assessing officer/cpio of the ward where she is assessed. Give her PAN number if available and present address etc. Pl enclose IPO of Rs.10 in favour of ACCOUNTS OFFICER, INCOME TAX DEPT and make itpayable at the place where U are submitting RTI appln. Good luck.
It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
