Lakshmi iyer

copy of pay slip of an employee can be given or not?

Question

Lakshmi iyer

Details of salary of the employee working in (Govt./Public sector) can be given.

 

Can the details given below of husband/wife who are living separately be given to either of the spouse?

 

1) Copy of the pay slip (Can be given or not) since it contains many

other details other than salary like loans & advances taken which are

personal to the employee.

2) Details of Investment made in a new flat by wife/husband who are

working in (Govt./Public sector) & how it is made? Since assets are

declared in the office where he/she is working ?

3) Whether consent needs to be taken from the employee for providing

his/her details to husband/wife before divorce?

Specifically:

 

1. Salary details yes, but salary slip - generally no. (depends on the details on the salary slip).

2. Details of investment in property - can be denied under Sec 8(1)(j).

3. No need to take consent for Salary details.

Since you are going to anyway deny information on property investment, no need to take any consent. Consent of third party should only be sought if the PIO intends to disclose the information.

 

Please also read some of the threads in the following search:

SALARY SLIP is not a confidential document. hence you can ask for copy of salary slip of govt, officers.

property transaction details can also be asked . Infacr every govt. employee is required to submit every property transaction details to his office.This is not deniable under RTI.

Dear Kanchan Lata Ji

 

Option/s available:

 

1. Your husband may file RTI application for copy of decision (or any order passed) taken on his representation. He can seek action taken report also.

The salary slip contains two columns - Income and Savings/other deductions. The INCOME portion is open for public consumption on demand. CPIO cannot refuse. The Savings/ other deductions is personal to the concerned employee. This can be refused by the CPIO - section 8(1)(e). In the PSU where I am employed, we generally give the extract of form 16 after blanking out the PAN details of the concerned employee.

My mother is asking for a photocopy of salary slip, which the department of MSRTC is not giving. I want to ask that on which rule of RTI my mother has right to ask the salary slip of my father. according to new laws.

A neglected wife can seek such information under RTI. There are no exemptions for the matters related to larger public interest. Neglecting his own spouse is against larger public interest. Such reason is enough, and she can even claim for certain percentage of salary payment to her.

Salary slip will not be disclosed under RTI because it contains "deductions" which might have personal details and therefore exempted under 8(1)(j).

 

However, monthly remuneration and the system of compensation has to be disclosed under RTI.

      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.
