Can I File a RTI against ICICI Bank





3 months back all of sudden I received several threatning calls from ICICI bank (ICICI bank third party vendor) regarding payment of purchases made through credit cards which I have never applied or never received.


I had raised my concerns to various department (Customer Care, Head Service Quality, Grievance Cell, etc) in ICICI bank but to no resolution from the bank.


I have filled a application in the Banking Ombudsman Offices, Consumer court also .


Can anyone guide how can I file a RTI against ICICI bank, to get a resolution to my problem with ICICI bank or also any other possible way where I can get the bank to answer my queries.

ICICI Bank is Private Body. You can file your RTI application with the RBI invoking sec 2(f) of the RTI Act which says that "information relating to any private body which can be accessed by a public authority under any other law for the time being in force;"


This means that information related to any Private Body (ICICI Bank) which can be accessed by a Public Authority (RBI) under any law for the time being in force;


If the RBI can access the information sought by you from ICICI Bank under any law, then RBI should access the information and provide it to you.


Also please go through this blogs:






Hope this helps.

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.

      I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society.
      The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is:
      1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information?
      2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I?
      3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 
      4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt?
      Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.
