For information on Companies don't use RTI instead use Section 610 of the Companies (Central Government's) General Rules & Forms, 1956. The said rules being statutory in nature and specific in their application, do not get overridden by the rules framed under the RTI Act with regard to prescription of fee for supply of information, which is general in nature, and apply to all kinds of applications made under the RTI Act to seek information. It would also be complete waste of public funds to require the creation and maintenance of two parallel machineries by the ROC one under Section 610 of the Companies Act, and the other under the RTI Act to provide the same information to an applicant. It would lead to unnecessary and avoidable duplication of work and consequent expenditure. The above was already ruled by Hon'ble High Court in the matter of ROC Vs Dharmendra Kumar Garg (W.P.© 11271/2009) dated 1.6.2012. The appellant filed an RTI application dated 3.12.2011 seeking information on (12) points relating to Ambuja Cement Ltd. Like no. of employees working in accounts department during the period Jan 1990 to Dec 1990, full particulars of employee of accounts department who have been voluntarily retired/resigned/terminated, details of direct or indirect assistance received from Central/State Govt., documents with respect to registration of Company etc. . The CPIO vide letter dated 12.12.2011 provided a point wise reply to the appellant. Not satisfied with the reply the appellant filed first appeal dated 16.12.2011 which was rejected by the order dated 30.12.2011. For information on Companies don't use RTI The respondent submits that as per the provisions of section 610 of the Companies Act, 1956, the records of the companies maintained by this office is available for physical inspection to any member of public on all the working days of this office in between 10:30 AM to 3:30 PM and also the online inspection of records of the companies is also available on the website of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs www.mca.gov.in. Citing the above High Court order, CIC ruled that "In view of the submissions of the respondent the available information can be inspected as per section 610 of the Companies Act, the Commission finds no reason to interfere with the order of the CPIO and the appeal is accordingly disposed off." Please read the numerous discussions on "Company Information" at our forum and get more information.
sidmis posted a topic in RTI in MediaRTI means Govt has to disclose info on corruption in even pvt firms: CIC As Reported by Ganesh Pandey in Indian Express New Delhi Posted online: Friday, January 11, 2008 at 0106 hrs The Central Information Commission (CIC) hasheld that the Government or a public authority, under the Right toInformation Act, has to provide information it has on any company, publicor private, despite the companyâ€™s refusal to part with such information. Information commissioner M M Ansari said that a public authority cannottake refuge to â€œthird party exemptionâ€ under the RTI Act to denyinformation merely because the company concerned has not concurred withsuch disclosure.â€œA major concern of the RTI Act is to contain corruption. The disclosure ofinformation relating to corrupt practices of public/private companies is,therefore, largely in public interestâ€ the CIC observed. The CICâ€™s order came on an appeal filed by Anil Kumar Sharma of Jabalpurwho sought certain information from Registrar of Companies (Ministry ofCompany Affairs) regarding a company of which he is a shareholder. In hisapplication, he alleged the company had been conducting its businessactivities in an â€œillegal mannerâ€ and has thus earned profit throughcorrupt practices. The requisite information was denied on the grounds thatthe company concerned did not permit the disclosure of information askedfor by the appellant and hence cannot be divulged without expressconcurrence of the company.Rejecting this argument, the CIC said that as the matter pertained toalleged corruption, disclosure of information was largely in the publicinterest and any exemption under Section 8(1)(d) of the Act â€” whichprotects from disclosure, information relating to commercial confidence,trade secrets or intellectual property, the disclosure of which would harmthe competitive position of a third party â€” is untenable. Directing the Registrar of Companies to acquire the information asked forand furnish it to the appellant within 15 days, the CIC said: â€œTheallegations made by the appellant about the illegal activities of theCompany in question should have been investigated by the competent body,mainly the Registrar of Companies. However since this was not done, the appellant is advised to approach the competent authority to investigate the allegations made by him so as to find the facts in the matter.
