Income tax details of neighbour

Question

rocketkuttan

Hello, Mr XX is a neighbour who generates huge income by illegal means. Mr XX evades income tax. Mr EE had filed several cases against Mr XX in civil and criminal courts. Recently IT sleuths raided similar illegal source of money and levied penalty to those persons other than Mr.XX as per news paper cuttings. Mr. XX escaped from penalty from IT by utilizing undue influence. Mr. EE needs details of income tax returns and other details to prove the illegal source of Mr.XX in the courts in all pending cases. Mr EE has photo copies of court documents to seek RTI information of Mr XX in the larger public interest. Here whether Mr EE requires attestation from a notary public in all the photo copies of court documents in order to seek RTI. Please advise whether Mr.EE could get information of IT returns etc by submitting these court documents and news paper cuttings alongwith RTI application.

Dear member, attestation from a notary public in all the photo copies of court documents in order to seek RTI is not required. Mr. EE can not get IT returns of Mr. XX but if he establish larger public interest then it is possible.

      Central Information Commission



      Decision No.285/IC(A)/2006
      F. No.CIC/MA/A/2006/00653
       
      Dated, the 20th September, 2006



      Name of the Appellant : Sh. Pradipta Dutta, B-141 Chittaranjan Park, New Delhi – 110 019
      Name of the Public Authority: Directorate of Income Tax (Legal & Research) (DIT), 3rd floor, Drumshaped Building, I.P.Estate, New Delhi- 110 002. DECISION
       
      Facts of the Case:
      The appellant had sought certain information in the form of queries, whichhave been duly responded by the CPIO and the appellate authority as well. Hehas however filed an appeal before the Commission against the reply of theappellate authority and prayed that the CPIO of DIT (L&R) be directed to furnishinformation with respect to his following queries:
      “Kindly inform why ITOs have been posted at DIT (L&R) even though there is no corresponding post in the same pay-scale at ITJSection, CBDT. What functions are the ITOs expected to discharge at DIT (L&R)?
      Kindly inform why ITOs at DIT (L&R) are being forced, under threat of disciplinary action, to perform the functions of an Asstt.Commissioner without being paid officiating pay.”
      Commission’s Decision:
       
      In its oft-repeated decisions, the Commission has advised the informationseekers that they ought not seek the views and comments of the CPIO on the questions asked by them. Yet, in the garb of seeking information mainly for redressal of their grievances, applications from requesters are filed. The CPIO’s in turn, have also ventured to answer them. Thus, the information seekers as providers have erred in interpreting the definition of information.
      A CPIO of any public authority is not expected to create and generate a fresh, an information because it has been sought by an appellant. The appellant is, therefore, advised to specify the required information, which may be provided, if it exists, in the form in which it is sought by him.
      The information sought relate to duties and responsibilities of ITOs deployed at different locations and the salary or compensation paid to them.Under Section 4(1) of the Act, all the public authorities are required to disclose such information as above. Had it been done by the respondent, the CPIO could have informed the applicant about the source where from he could have obtained the information. The need for filing application for information and this appeal could have thus been avoided. In pursuance of the principle of maximum disclosure, as u/s 4(1) of the Act, the CPIO is directed to disseminate the information so that in future, such applications are minimized.
      The appeal is accordingly disposed of.
