Dear member, RTI is not necessary to get judgment of High Court because it is on the website of the court so you can print out a copy. If you want certified copy you have to file application and by paying prescribed fee you can get the certified copy of concerned judgment.

Every library (Bar Association) in High Courts have been provided with a separate cell and internet, and once a citation is given, they charge xerox fees and deliver those decisions in minutes. (though it may be specifically for use of the Advocates, generally the request from citizen is also considered by the Manager)

This service is not limited to those judgments of that particular HC alone, and one can get any HC judgments and SC judgment xerox copies from Library

It can be downloaded even from google --Just type citation and find in google.. Any internet cafe can provide you copy of any HC Judgment.

Thanks Manojji and Prasadji for your quick response, but what if I want a certified copies of a judgement of another High court (i am from kolkata). If it was Calcutta High Court, i could easily got it by a known lawyer. But what if i want a judgement (certified copy) of a another High Court (suppose Mumbai), i dont know any lawyer out there, so I thought for RTI if it could help me. Hope I made myself clear. Please reply.

You can apply as per procedure prescribed for getting certified copies of judgement. The procedure is on website of respective High Courts. RTI can not be used for getting information / record from judicial side of any court. You have to only follow procedure prescribed by State High Courts.

Then search for advocate of that High Court, and ask him to apply for a certified copy as per Court procedure, and send him a Vakalat. It is easy and if a copy is provided to them, it needs only a certification and the maximum time for providing any certified copy from HC is one week, and there are advocates in HC that can get the copy in one day.

Instead of going for RTI, go for obtaining CC as per Court procedure before vacation commences.

You cannot get judgment copy under RTI from Bombay High Court. Exemption under Rule 13(h) of Bombay High Court RTI Rules provides as under: "(h) information which is contained in published material, available to the Public or which is available on the web site"

In 'To-day's Segment in the portal, it appears Madam Raveena has replied. Several times from last night, I am opening the post and could not find her reply in the post. (11.00 p.m. to 10.00 am)

What may be reason for such discrepancy ?

      Imperative Facts of RTI:
      In the case of, Pradeep S. Ahluwalia v. Delhi Tourism & Transportation Development Corporation[vi], learned council held the following:-
       
      If the Public Information Officers, First Appellate Authorities and the Commissions allow reiterated RTI applications, at that point, there will be no termination to the ‘information litigation’ and the public powers that will be at the in receipt of end for no liability of theirs.
      Public dogma concerns that: ‘it is in the importance of the Public that there should be a culmination to litigation’ and ‘no man should be overtaxed over for the same reason’
      It is embedded from the order and the provisions of the Right to Information Act, 2005 that every single citizen has a right to attain information from a concerned public power, but then, only once and not perpetually.
      Constant filing of RTI applications, by prolonged information-inquirers, has the influence of blockage the public offices by barricading the open flow of information to the eligible and honest RTI applicants, above and beyond precluding the officers of the concerned public authority from carrying out the responsibilities attached to their office.
