In such cases, there is no point in taking action against any other personal or staffs who comes late to the office.

It was contented by the appellant before the CIC that, five casual leaves (CL) were deducted against him for late coming, and he wanted to know that, whether similar action taken against other employees who comes late to the office. Accordingly, he filed the application under Right to Information Act.

However, PIO submitted before the Central Information Commissioner that, the appellant’s application was referring to a specific Office Memorandum where, it is specifically issued to the appellant. Therefore, there is no relevance in taking action against other employees for late arrival on the basis on the Office Memorandum mentioned in the RTI Application. Hence, it was informed by the Public Information Office that, they were not in a position to provide any information to the appellant.

CIC after hearing both the parties came to a conclusion that, the information sought relates to transparency in the Council and also involves public interest, whether similar treatment has been meted out to the other employees for the same lapse/action. CIC further directed the respondent, i.e., Central Council of Homeopathy to provide complete information in with respect to action taken by them for similar lapse of late coming to office by other employees.

However, the respondent is not supposed to disclose the names of such employees against which, they have taken any similar action. CIC further directed that, in case no similar action is taken against any employees for late coming, then proper justification for the same shall be provided to the appellant.

No personal information even if she is your wife, Rules Karnataka High Court

While considering an application under the provisions of Right to Information Act, seeking certain information relating to the passport issued to his wife by the Regional Passport Officer, Passport officer rejects husband’s RTI application, and informed the applicant that, the info cannot be furnished. Such information is not liable to be disclosed in view of the provision of Section 8(1)(j) of the Right to Information Act which prohibits it.

After his appeal was rejected by the first appellate authority, the Joint Secretary, Ministry of External Affairs, applicant had appealed the Central Information Commissioner, and had approached the High Court. The High Court in its order noted that even if that issue of appeal before the Central Information Commissioner is kept aside, the Passport Officer was right in his stand. “The reasons indicated are justified in view of the provisions contained in the Right to Information Act. Hence, the same does not call for interference.”

Section 8(1) (j) in the Right to Information Act, 2005

Information which relates to personal information the disclosure of which has not relationship to any public activity or interest, or which would cause unwarranted invasion of the privacy of the individual unless the Central Public Information Officer or the State Public Information Officer or the appellate authority, as the case may be, is satisfied that the larger public interest justifies the disclosure of such information: Provided that the information, which cannot be denied to the Parliament or a State Legislature shall not be denied to any person.

Political convenience shouldn’t lead to exemptions from RTI

The Right to Information Act, 2005 says nothing contained in the RTI Act will apply on the organization which are listed in the second schedule of the Section 24, provided that the information (any material in any form) held by or under the control of the public authorities related to allegations of corruption and human rights violation shall not be covered under the exemption.

Recent inclusion of CBI in the list of exempted organizations is one of the most debated as it primarily deals with corruption cases which are not covered in the protection given to organizations under Section 24 of the RTI Act.

Subsequently, a two-member committee constituted by the CIC has said that such decisions (inclusion of CBI in the list of exempted organizations) to shield organizations from the transparency law should not be the result of “political convenience or other extraneous factors“.
