Sir, If there is legal linkage or unofficial linkage between CIC and Courts, several cases would have been closed. Getting Info thru RTI is easy, fast @ neglible cost .

Citizens can expect several things from Authorities.

But, ultimately the system should work only as per laid down procedures.

There is lot of difference between CIC and Courts,

and expect only those changes that can be implemented,

forget those unpractical ideas that can never be implemented.

Courts will never allow any one, even to peep into their internal affairs.

When SC itself is subjected to RTI, anything can happen! When a positive Govt is there, everything will be viewed optimistically. Who expected the procedure of self attestation is sufficient for Govt purposes?

Please do not club different activities not concerned with Court.

There is no self attestation process in Court matters.

This should always be as per Indian Evidence Act

There is no change in such Act.

SC is not superior to Statutory Acts.

They may just interpret stipulations.

      Decision No.292/IC(A)/2006
      F. No.CIC/MA/A/2006/00588


       

      Dated, the 21st September, 2006


       
       

      Name of the Appellant : Sh. Sharabh Dubey, 11/7 Civil Lines, Kanpur –208 001. (U.P.)
      Name of the Public Authority: The British India Corporation Limited, 14/136 Civil Lines, P.B. 77, Kanpur-208 001.
      DECISION
       
      Facts of the Case:
       

      The appellant is an employee of the respondent. He was transferred to another Unit of the company. The office order was challenged by him in the Court, which adjudicated on the matter. Subsequently, he has filed a few more petitions on service related matters in the Court. In this backdrop, he has sought documents relating to the legal opinion obtained by the respondent, file notings by the senior officials on the issue of transfer, letters/correspondence with other officials, etc.
      The CPIO has denied the information and sought exemption u/s 8(1)(d) & (g) of the Act.
      The case was heard on 12.9.06. The appellant could not be present. The CPIO and the appellate authority were present. In the course of hearing, the CPIO showed a copy of the petition filed by the appellant in the Court, whic hcontained almost all the documents asked for by him. The CPIO contended that the documents asked for by the appellant relate to the various petitions filed by him in the Court. He, therefore, pleaded that the disclosure of the documents might adversely affect the disputed cases. Hence, the relevant documents are treated as confidential.
       
      Commission’s Decision:
       

      There is a dispute between the appellant and the company on service matters, including transfer of the appellant to another unit. The matter is pending before the Court for adjudication. There is every possibility that the appellant would get opportunity for his effective defense. The information sought is in the interest of the seeker. And, as such, there is no overriding public interest, u/s 8(1)(j) of the Act, for disclosure of the information.
      The appeal is therefore dismissed.
