    Re: Can a Secretary ask for any information?


    Whether an organization is covered under RTI or not depends upon which Commissioner hears the case
    C. I. Commissioner Ansari always rules that organizations are not covered.
    C. I. Commissioner Balasubramanian rules that organizations are covered.
    C. I. Commissioner Habibullah rules that organizations are covered.

    Decision by Habibullah was the best reasoned decision. The parts of law that have governed this questions in other areas were well covered.

    Under the rules of CIC, decision from one commissioner can be appealed to the Chief Information Commissioner. Since Habibulah is the Chief, an appeal against decision of Ansari has a good chance of being successful.

    We need a volunteer in Delhi, who can write a good appeal against the decisions of Ansari. According to CIC rules, decisions of one commissioner can be appealed to the Chief Commissioner. If you are willing to do the leg work, please email me. It is important to appeal otherwise Ansari and PIOs will continue to deny the benefits of RTI to the public.

    Thanks

    Satish,

    Very good work and a excellent suggestion.
    Although, I would have been very interested to take this forward, unfortunately, I am in Hyderabad.

    You need to file a review appeal against this decision. You may point out CIC decisions No.CIC/A/3/2006 dated 03.04.2006 in Subash Chander Agarwal v/s Supreme Court of India.

    Here is another decision which makes this whole issue even more confusing.

    Please see:

    http://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/Decision_12032007_16.pdf

    In the comments, it is stated that earlier similar information sought by M/S Arjun Industries Ltd. was rejected on the ground that a company was not a citizen and that fee had not been paid in the prescribed mode by a decision dated 21.9.2006. Appeal against the decision was also rejected by the AA by an order dated 20.10.2006. Therefore, both the CPIO and AA have disposed of the case in time.

    DECISION

    2. Without going into the correctness of the decisions of AA/CPIO in
    regard to the application filed by M/S Arjun Industries Ltd., since the
    present application has been filed by the appellant as an individual, even though in the capacity as the MD of M/S Arjun Industries Ltd., the same decision cannot be applied in respect of the present application. Therefore, if the information sought by her is not exempt in any of the provisions of RTI Act, the CPIO will furnish the information within 15 days.

    Re: Can a Secretary ask for any information?


    I think one point the discussion is revolving is:

    1. If the company/union ask for the information: Rejected
    2. If one ask in the individual capacity (By writing his name) even though in the company/union letterhead: Information to be given.

    You are very Correct. Country has to run as we like becoz it is our money which is giving the strength to act the country against us. This we have to check.
