    Please remember as to what happened when one RTI Applicant solicited information of PM's recommendation on declaration of emergency reports (PM Indira Gandhi regime) even after 20 years ?

    Hon'ble Member-my view point which appears to be true is Undoubtedly true. If you have any confusion may take the perusal of aforesaid section,.This is my humble request to senior member of this forum to quote what actually says aforesaid article. Under Right to Information Act 2005,nothing is exempted from disclosure if matter is concerned with allegation of corruption, human rights violations or in larger public interest requires to be disclosed. Our citizenry wants to know what is going on in the system and transparency act provides such facility.

    Article 74 (2) in the constitution of India 1949
    (2)-The question whether any, and if so what advice was tendered by ministers to the president shall not be enquired into in any court.
    Whether this provision of constitution of India bars court to entertain such conversations or intended to keep confidential the conversation. These conversations can't be subjected to scrutiny of court.

    "The provision that "information that can be given to the Parliament can be given to the application is meaning less. The commission has not accepted it even once. In this case, if even asked for cause and reason which is not allowed in the Act (02/IC/(a)/CIC/2006 dt 22.02.06
    (Extract of decision - not of this member)

    @yogesh
    Penalty can be imposed on all officers, not only PIOs. An officer whose assistance has been taken under Se. 5(5) by the PIO may be penalized if he fails to provide such assistance (adjunct CIC/WB/2006/000018 dt. 28.09.2006)

    Whether this provision of constitution of India bars court to entertain such conversations or intended to keep confidential the conversation. These conversations can't be subjected to scrutiny of court.

    When Article 74(2) of the Constitution applies and bars disclosure, information cannot be furnished. RTI Act cannot and does not have the ability and mandate to negate the constitutional protection under Article 74(2). The said Article refers to inquiry by courts but will equally apply to CIC.

    Seven Judges of the Supreme Court in S.P. Gupta and others Vs. President of India and others (AIR 1982 SC 149) have examined and interpreted Article 74(2) of the Constitution of India. The majority view of six Judges is elucidated in the judgment of Bhagwati, J. in para 55 onwards. It was observed that the Court cannot embark upon an inquiry as to whether any and if so what advice was tendered by the Council of Ministers to the President.

    Since such advice is beyond the purview of judicial scrutiny, there shall also be no remedy in case of denial.

    We only give suggestions. You may file an RTI Application and get the experience and share the practical regime with our members.

    Anyway the posts above by Kariraji has answered the point.
    Coming to my post that your comments appear to be true but there are CHECKS and BALANCES I am to add a simple point Sec8(1)(h) authorise the PIO/CPIO to reject the INFORMATION if it "IT IMPEDES THE INVESTIGATION,APPREHENSION, PROSECUTION" which is mostly meant for CBI/POLICE but all the CPIOs are using this even in DEPARTMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS which are DOMESTIC and not involving any PROSECUTION/APPREHENSION.They are citing the same as reasons U/S 4(1)(d).Suppose of the state legislature/Parliment ask the particular department to tell who are the officials ahgainst whom the investigations is going on and what are the allegations/charges, the PIO/CPIO will have to GIVE but he is DENYING TO US.But RTI says the INFORMATION which cannot be denied to legislature/parliament should not be denied to the Citizen.Thus PIO/CPIO is only taking temporary shelter under 8(1)(h0 eventhough his denial is INCORRECT and he thinks let him go to FAA or CIC then we will see.
