New Delhi, July 17: A woman, who is in a legal wrangle for maintenance, has been allowed by the Central Information Commission (CIC) details about salary of her husband, working for a public sector power company.
Ritu Sharma, in an RTI application, had sought the salary certificate of Daya Sharma, her husband and a senior employee with power generation major NTPC, alleging that he had misled a family court hearing her maintenance petition.
In response to the application, NTPC's chief Public Information Officer had denied the information stating that the disclosure, related to personal information of a third party, would cause "unwarranted incursion of the privacy".
Terming the denial of information as "untenable", the CIC directed the CPIO to provide the details within 15 days to the applicant, a resident of Raipur in Chattisgarh.
"All the public authorities are under the obligation under the Right to Information Act to disclose salaries of their employees," Information Commissioner M M Ansari said, while allowing Ritu's application.
The Commission held that the monthly remuneration received by each of its (public authority) officers and employees, including the system of compensation as provided in its regulations should be published.
