    Re: RTI for Private Origanization


    Samar,

    RTI Act 2005 is only applicable to Public Authorities as defined in Section 2(h) of the RTI Act:

    h) "public authority" means any authority or body or institution of self- government established or constituted—
    a) by or under the Constitution;
    b) by any other law made by Parliament;
    c) by any other law made by State Legislature;
    d) by notification issued or order made by the appropriate Government, and includes any—
    1 body owned, controlled or substantially financed;
    2 non-Government organization substantially financed, directly or indirectly by funds provided by the appropriate Government;


    Another important point to be noted is Sec 2(f):

    f) "information" means any material in any form, including records, documents, memos, e-mails, opinions, advices, press releases, circulars, orders, logbooks, contracts, reports, papers, samples, models, data material held in any electronic form and information relating to any private body which can be accessed by a public authority under any other law for the time being in force;

    If you want to get information about a private body, please think about which Public Authority has access to that information.

    Hello Samar,

    if you feel that some organization ought to be under the RTI Act, 2005 as per definitions provided in above threads, you can ask /challenge that organization to come under the RTI Act.
    So don't hesitate to act.

    In that case you can make a complain directly to the State/Central Information Commission to declare them as a Public Authority.

    Now a day’s many organizations are pretending to be out of the purview of RTI Act. Even NGOs can be brought under the RTI Act and asked to supply information if they are recipients of Public funds/assistance.

    Hello Samar,

    But of course you can use the Private Messaging to convey something personally if you so wish.
