  3. As reported by PTI on ptinews.com on 17 February 2008: Info on operation of ATMs not to be revealed under RTI: CIC Info on operation of ATMs not to be revealed under RTI: CIC New Delhi, Feb 17 (PTI) Citizens cannot invoke their right to information to compel commercial banks to share the details on operation of their ATMs, the Central Information Commission (CIC) has held. The Commission's observation came as it turned down an RTI application seeking certain information from the country's biggest lender SBI about the operation of its ATMs. "Information concerning operation of ATMs is really a matter of commercial confidence and as a matter of fact, lot of security is involved in such a procedure and such information can not be given to any outsider," Information Commissioner Padma Balasubramanian said in a recent order. The order came on a plea of G Ramachandra Rao, a resident of Kurnool in Andhra Pradesh, who had approached SBI with a plethora of queries ranging from defective disbursement of its ATMs to seeking copies of guidelines framed by RBI and Indian Banks' Association (IBA) on maintenance of the Automated Teller Machines. Turning down Rao's request for the guidelines, General Manager of SBI's Kurnool branch had said that there were no specific guidelines of RBI or IBA on maintenance of ATMs or withdrawing excess cash from them. On the question of defective disbursement of ATMs, the bank said that such details were specific to its customers and would fall under the category of 'third-party information', which was categorically exempted from disclosure under the RTI Act, 2005. "I agree with the stand taken by the Central Public Information Officer (CPIO) of SBI," Balasubramanian said while disposing of the applicant's plea.

  8. The Central Information Commission has ruled that information pertaining to account details of bank customers is exempted from disclosure under the RTI Act. Upholding the decision of the Canara Bank, which refused to disclose the details about the Non Performing Accounts (NPA ) of other parties and the settlement that the Bank has entered with them, Information Commissioner Padma Balasubramaniam said that an information which is either a matter concerning commercial confidence or available to a person in fiduciary relationship or which is a personal information having no relationship with any public activity or interest, is exempted from disclosure under the RTI Act. The ruling came on the appeal of one Rajan Verma of Amritsar, who wanted detailed information about the compromise done by the Canara Bank in respect of Non-Performing Accounts (NPA) of all parties settled during the last five years by the Jalandhar branch of the Bank. The Bank refused to disclose this information on the grounds that the information is exempt from disclosure under Sections 8(1)(d) and 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act and the bank is bound to maintain confidentiality of the details of the accounts of its customers. Dismissing the appeal, the Commission observed that the RTI Act exempts from disclosure any information which would harm the competitive position of the third party including an information relating to commercial confidence, trade secrets or intellectual property, personal information and information held in trust . “A one-time settlement that has been arrived at by the bank in respect of a NPA being a matter of commercial confidence, the bank is under no obligation to disclose such information unless it is satisfied that larger public interest warrants the disclosure of such information. The facts of the case reveals that the appellant is seeking the details of accounts of other private individuals with a view to protect his personal interests as he happens to be a guarantor in respect of a loan granted by the Bank which became an NPA. Moreover, the information concerning other parties are certainly personal information and the bank holds such information concerning private persons in a relationship of a trust and as such it cannot be disclosed,” the order stated.

  9. Urban Coop bank probes accounts of fake CMC staff CUTTACK: The issue of fake employees in the Cuttack Municipal Corporation has not only kept burning for over past seven years but also getting murkier by the passing day. While the alleged detection of a sarpanch of one district drawing salary from the civic body had caused a furore prompting the High Court to take note and order a Crime Branch probe into the issue of fake employees, the Urban Cooperative Bank has started an enquiry into the account of the person in question. Prashant Samal, the sarpanch of Bauripada gram panchayat under Simulia panchayat samiti in Balasore district and the man in the eye of the storm, has been alleged to have manipulated documents of identity proof provided to the bank after the issue came to light. The fudging was done allegedly in connivance with some bank staff. President of the Bank Sajjan Sharma and Chief Executive Dharmananda Das said they had initiated an enquiry into the allegations and will take action on the basis of the report which is expected soon. The two voters� identity cards, provided by Samal during opening of his accounts at College Square branch and the Main Branch for credit of salary from CMC, have allegedly been changed after the controversy erupted. The matter was first brought to light by the former chairperson of the Simulia panchayat samiti Sarojini Mohapatra. She had lodged a complaint with the CMC C o m m i s s i o n e r while seeking all details on Samal�s appointment in the Corporation under the RTI Act. The Corporation had found prima facie evidence and blocked his salary since August pending enquiry. However, in the meantime a namesake had also surfaced claiming to be the real Prashanta Samal but he too had not been seen earlier in the department. The Orissa High Court, on the intervention petition of amicus curiae PR Das, had directed the Crime Branch to conduct the probe and submit its report in December. Existence of fake employees in large number in the civic body was first detected in 2000 by the then chief executive Vishal Dev and a list of 146 persons was drawn from different departments and wings. But the malady continued to afflict the corporation for lack of any corrective measures by the authorities or the Government. Urban Coop bank probes accounts of fake CMC staff - Newindpress.com

    Bank of Baroda refuses Postal Order

    An applicant was directed by Bank of Baroda to take back the Postal Order for Rs.10/=and instead send a Bankers Cheque/Draft along with the RTI application. Mrs Shaina Mariam Warsi of Muradabad, filed a complaint with the CIC when her RTI application was returned with the above advice. Deciding on the complaint the CIC held that : "it was not proper on the part of the Public Authority to return the application dated 09-02-2007. It was incumbent upon him to have referred the application to the concerned CPIO/PIO under intimation to the applicant. Besides the RTI application fee could be paid through postal order as it is an authorized mode of payment vide Department of Personal & Training Notification No. GSR 294(E) dated 17th May 06, under the RTI Act, and these have to be accepted by the Public Authority. Non acceptance of the Postal Order by the Public Authority was a clear violation of the provisions of the RTI Act & Rules made there under. The provision of the RTI Act should be scrupulously observed in future". The Commission also noted that the officers of the bank are not quite conversant with provision of the RTI Act, and they need to be imparted training in this behalf. Bank Authorities are therefore directed to take adequate steps accordingly. Decision No. 820/ICPB/2007 dated 21/08/2007 on Complaint from Mrs. Shaina Mariam Warsi Vs Bank of Baroda

  12. This RTI is a powerful tool to expose major policy decisions. Recently a major breakthrough happened with effort in Delhi to privatize water supply in the city. Apparently, this was a proposed World Bank funded effort. The proposal was on since the mid nineties in complete secrecy. However, some news leaked out in to the press, and an RTI petition was filed asking for the files on this process. At first there was a lot of resistance, but finally the files were made public, and the story was shocking. Apparently, the World Bank was arm twisting and almost dictating policy to the government. The process of privatization (or any government work) takes place with bids by bidding companies. There is a two layered process, where first in this case the top six companies would be selected, and then in the second round, the best among them would be selected. Here, in the first round, Pricewaterhouse-Coopers, the well known consulting firm, had a bid that came in tenth. By law, they should have been eliminated. But the world bank insisted that PWC be considered. At first the government protested, but with continuous pressure relented, and declared PWC to be selected in the top six by declaring it to be an Indian company! In the next round, again PWC fared badly, with only a 67% score, and a terrible proposal. Again the world bank pressurized the government (by asking it to remove the people who evaluated the proposal), and forced the government to declare the PWC bid as the winner. Again, the government capitulated to pressure. It wasn’t just this, but the entire process of water privatization in this proposal was rather absurd, and would have affected millions of people adversely. Bowing to public pressure (after the dealings were revealed due to the RTI petition), the government scrapped the project completely.
  13. Central Information Commission Decision No. 297/IC(A)/2006 F. No. CIC/MA/A/2006/00663 Dated, the 21st September, 2006 Name of the Appellant : Shri S. Gangaiah Nayakar, 3/488, Rajapalayam Salai, T. N.C.Alangulam, District - Virudhunagar-626127 Name of the Public Authority: Indian Overseas Bank, Customers Service Department, Central office, 763,Anna Salai, Channai-600 002. DECISION The appellant had sought certain information, which was largely furnished to him.

The CPIO contented that the information sought is related to personal information, which is exempted u/s 8(1)(j) of the Act. The appellate authority upheld the decision of the CPIO. There is no denial of information to the appellant. The Banks are expected to maintain confidentiality of the accounts of its customers and that the documents submitted by its customers do not fall under public domain. Hence, exempted u/s 8(1)(j) of the Act. The appeal is accordingly disposed of. Sd/- (Prof M. M. Ansari) Information Commissioner Download the decision from Download Segment
