Thread: are questions allowed under rti act


  1. First you ask question to yourself, whether the problem is concerned to life and liberty of person.
    Then frame the question accordingly.




  2. Good reply nile.


  3. see article 32 says that you can move to supreme court only when your fundamental right is infringed. there are only 5 fundamental rights named in constitution. but there defination is so wide that so many things falls under fundamental rights.

    In the same way term 'life and liberty' is not clear cut, so if you have copy of any judjement of cic or sic it will be easier to understand what falls under 'life and liberty' and what doesnt.

  5. Re: are questions allowed under rti act


    The basic principle of RTI Act is to access the information under the control of the public authorities, in order to promote transparency and accountability in the working of every public authority.

    Hence, in my view we can ask questions regarding availability of information held with public authorities i.e. what were the grounds for rejection etc.

    Thanks to all,

    You can make use of Article 21 - Right to Life and Liberty enshrined under the Constitution of India to highlight your Life and Liberty clause in RTI.

    However, the onus is on you to prove that its indeed important to be covered under this clause.

    Reply from respective department was -" aking specific information is allowed but asking questions is not allowed under rti act"
    Please ask " What are the guidelines for recruitment in civil services pertaining to a candidate who was honourably acquitted in a contested criminal case ? please provide me a copy" OR Is there any Government order that a person acquitted after the trial in a criminal case becomes ineligible for the Government job? If so please provide a copy of the order at usual cost"
    Thanx , adil

    Dear all:
    As per the provisions of the RTI Act, if questions are in the form of the information, the same has to be entertained by the public authorities.
