    Re: Can a Secretary ask for any information?


    Reposting from another thread:

    There is a small article in today's Economic Times referring to the following decision of the CIC:
    https://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/Decision_17052007_04.pdf
    The article says that Companies can also file applications under RTI Act.
    can someone please clarify..

    For some reason, CIC has been favouring companies and NGOs in filing RTI Applications. eg Transparency International India, Cannon etc.

    Maybe future decisions would let us know more about this subject.

    Tell the secretary to request for the information in his name. In this case also, if the authority deny information, he may appeal first to FAA and then to the Information Commission (state/central), if necessary.

    The CIC in two of the recent decision has denied the information as the complainant has sought the information on behalf of the organization, of which he is a secretary, stating that the information seeker is not covered Under Section 3 of the Act.

    These seem to be contrary to earlier decisions of CIC widely quoted above and elsewhere in this forum. How to clarify the factual position ?

    Here is another decision where IC Mr M.M. Ansari has disallowed a appeal from a VP of a employees union:

    6. The information seeker, being an organization, is not covered u/s 3 of the Act. The appeal is, therefore, not maintainable.

    Full decision can be viewed at:

    Here is yet another decision of similar nature from Prof. Ansari who ruled
    "the appellant was advised to seek information as citizen, as his present appeal was not covered u/s 3 of the Act. Information sought should be available with the CPIO in any material form. "
