    So , if I ask for the reason of helping the corrupt persons or the reason of 'dedicated' misdeed' on the part of any public authority, why the SPIO wil simply reply -- RTI Act if meant for information , not explanation.
    So, please let me know, whether it was at all obligatory on part of any PA to provide reasons or not?
    You have made a point, but you cannot just jump by skipping Section 4(1)(c). Seek the information on policy matters first and then if its denied, seek the "quasi-judicial" decision for the denial U/s 4(1)(d).

    Dear Abhijeet,

    I suppose what section 4(1) (d) means is that if a public authority has made any administrative decision or a quasi judicial decision one can question the decision.

    For example a quasi judicial authority like deputy registrar co-operative society has pronounced a decision between a member of the society and the managing committee, one can question and seek explaination on the basis on which he has decided and given the judgment.

    But section 4(1)(d) would not mean that one can ask general questions or seek general explainations under the RTI Act.
