Can a Public Limited Company seek informations under the provisons of RTI Act ?
Can a Public Limited Company , registered under the provisons of The Companies Act ,1956(of India) , seek informations under the provisons of RTI Act ?? What are the related judgments/orders in this aspect.
Well, as per my reading, the RTI Act only mentions "Citizen" and "Person" as a applicant. If one reads the act in broad terms, any "entity" like a association, Public Limited Company, Pvt Ltd. Company, organisation can ask for information.
Why don't you give a application on your letter head and see what happens. Should be a good case study.
Alternatively, do like my company does, we have given applications in our MD's personal name...but the contact address , tel numbers, etc. are all of the office.

Thank you karira for providing this important citation. This decision will open the doors to allow the corporate sector to reap the benefits under RTI. When that happens, simultaneously we should think of bringing the corporate sector also under the purview of RTI.
