yes public sector comes under RTI. here is the decision given by CIC in this regard will make it clear.


After hearing them, the Commission informed the HAL

representatives that they should realise that there had been a paradigm

shift in the tenor of administration leading to transparency and

accountability as a consequence of the Right to Information Act coming into

being. It was further stated that the opinion of their advocates was

incompetent and illogical because if accepted, it would lead to the absurd conclusion that all public bodies under the Central and State Governments

would have to be declared by separate notifications that they were covered

by the RTI Act leading to many dimensional confusion. Further the term

‘notification’ used in clause (h)(d) of Section 2, implied that concerned

body/organisation had been set up under orders of the Government and that

it did not mean notifying separately the applicability of the Act to each

Government body.




Kindly find the above order here:

      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.
