The state information commission had ordered AMC-MET a few weeks ago to upload all information regarding its functions, budget and employee status on its website- amcdental.org. The trust established a dental college in 2009 for various academic courses in medicine. These disclosures are mandatory as AMC-MET is a public-funded trust. Despite this, the trust had managed to remain largely underground for many years, till RTI queries started probing into its activities.

karira posted a topic in RTI in Media[h=1]CIC directs Delhi Women Commission to disclose rape records[/h] New Delhi: Amid outrage over the interview of a December 16 gangrape convict, CIC on Wednesday directed the Delhi Commission of Women to make public records of rapes committed in the national capital with stern conditions to ensure that identities of victims are not disclosed. "The Commission observes that the records relating to rape victims cannot be totally blocked from sharing for research purposes on the ground of personal information under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. "When it is possible to separate information that can be given from that cannot be given, the PIO has to invoke doctrine of severability to facilitate the information," The Commission observes that the records relating to rape victims cannot be totally blocked from sharing for research purposes on the ground of personal information under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said. The case relates to Baladevan Rangaraju who claimed that he wanted information on rape victims for research purpose and personally requested the Secretary of the Department, who after knowing the purpose, refused to furnish the records. Rangaraju said information sought by him had to be maintained by the Department according to Delhi Commission for Women Act, 1994. The Commission expressed concern over the issue of the protection of privacy of the rape victims and contended that it was not possible to separate the names of the victims from various documents including medico-legal case reports. "Facilitate inspection of the records to the authorised female representative of the appellant with an assurance that they shall not bring any electronic device like video records, mobile, camera etc, block out the names and personal details of the victim and accused by whitener on the photostat copies," Sridhar said setting stern guidelines for disclosure of sensitive information. He said each paper shall be verified by the officials of Delhi Women Commission to ensure that nowhere victims' names and private details are revealed before certifying. "The appellant is directed to enter a non-disclosure agreement with an undertaking that he/his representative will not reveal information about the personal details of the victims and the accused and that they shall be responsible for any such revelation through the documents shared," he said. Acharyulu warned that any such disclosure would not only result in the breach of undertaking but also an offence under the Indian Penal Code. "It shall be responsibility of the respondent authority to secure records, and the appellant shall share the copy of the research report with the Women's Commission and this Commission," the Commissioner said in his order.

The state public information officer of the state home department was also informed to submit a show cause within 15 days from the receipt of the order of the chief commissioner why penalty as prescribed under section 20 of the RTI act be imposed to him for denying the petitioner the information he had sought. The penalty that could be awarded for violation of the act includes a maximum of Rs. 25000 and recommendation for disciplinary action against him. The ruling of the state chief information commissioner stated that copies of the magisterial inquiry reports which were considered by the state government along with their memorandum of action taken only in respect of those cases of such inquiry reports which had been laid before the state cabinet, discussed, approved and final action were over can be provided under the Right to Information Act, 2005. The ruling was passed responding to a petition filed by one W Joykumar Singh of Huikap Mayai Leikai, Yairipok who failed to get the information from the state home department following an application made on May 19 this year. As no response was received from the concerned official of the state home department, the applicant lodged a complaint with the chief information commissioner. The commission had taken up the matter on July 27 by calling comments to be submitted within 10 days from the concerned SIPO. However no one turn up from the respondent`s side on the day of hearing which was fixed on July 30 this year.

As per the comment of the SIPO, the home department is exempted from the purview of the Act except the cases involving corruption or human right violations, as the cases of magisterial inquiries relate to the activities of the action of security organizations, both Central and state.

ganpat1956 posted a topic in RTI in MediaNEW DELHI: The Central Information Commission has directed the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to disclose by June 5 all information on the "code of conduct for judges for various courts including the higher courts" to a complainant. Non-compliance with the order will be regarded as a mala fide suppression of information and penalty proceedings initiated against the NHRC, Information Commissioner O.P. Kejariwal said. On June 12, 2006, Subhash Chandra Agrawal of Delhi filed an application with the NHRC's public information officer, seeking a copy of the code of conduct and some other information. In his reply, the officer said the NHRC did not have a copy and that it could be obtained from the appropriate authority. In July, Mr. Agrawal approached the Commission seeking a direction to the NHRC to furnish a copy of the recommendations of the `Conference on Corruption' held in May 2006. The NHRC said the recommendations would be printed and a copy sent to him. However, in view of the importance of the issue, the Commission directed the NHRC to show Mr. Agrawal a copy of the recommendations before they were sent for printing. It also asked the NHRC to allow the complainant to inspect the file on his letter written to A.S. Anand, NHRC Chairman, on May 25, 2006.

NEW DELHI: The CBSE may have refused to provide information on the number of students seeking re-evaluation of their answer sheets, but Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) Wajahat Habibullah has said such details should be disclosed under the RTI Act. Responding to CBSE's recent denial to provide details on the number of students seeking re-evaluation of answer sheets, Habibullah told PTI, "the information sought under the Act should be provided by the Board." CBSE, in its reply to an application filed by a Delhi resident Dev Ashish Bhattacharya, had denied the information on grounds that it did not have a re-evaluation procedure in place. The response provided by the Board includes a page from its rule book which revealed that answer books are maintained for a period of three months after which they are "disposed off in the manner as decided by the Chairman from time to time." Seemingly concerned at a possible disposal of answer sheets thereby making them unavailable for further scrutiny, Habibullah said in such a situation the students should ask the Commission to direct CBSE to preserve their relevant answer sheets. Interestingly, Board Chairman Ashok Ganguly had recently said "Once the answer script is evaluated, there is no question of any re-evaluation,". CBSE should disclose re-evaluation details: CIC-Education-The Times of India
NEW DELHI: In a landmark decision, the Central Information Commission (CIC) on Saturday directed the disclosure of the file containing, among other things, the correspondence between the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and the Law Minister on the controversial appointment of Justice Virender Jain as the Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) Wajahat Habibullah ruled that the correspondence contained in the file did not fall under Sec. 8 of the Right to Information Act, which gives exemption from disclosure to certain categories of sensitive information. References The CIC, however, held that Justice Y.K. Sabharwal's July 27, 2006 letter to Law Minister H.R. Bhardwaj contained references to a number of persons who were "third parties" to the matter. It was through this letter that the Chief Justice conveyed the decision of the Supreme Court collegium on the appointment of Mr. Justice Jain to the Law Minister. Mr. Habibullah directed the Principal Information Officer of the Ministry of Law & Justice to invite the third parties concerned to make written or oral submissions on the question of disclosure of information pertaining to them and ascertain if any them had valid objections against disclosure of information relating to them. The CIC further directed that in the event a valid ground was established, the appellant "may be supplied" with information excluding "the objectionable portion." He ordered the exercise to be completed within a month from the date of his decision. Appellant Subhash Chander Agrawal originally sought the complete file relating to Mr. Justice Jain's appointment from the President's Secretariat. He asked for copies of all file notings, the opinions of the members of the Supreme Court collegium as well as the correspondence between the President and the Prime Minister. The President's Secretariat transferred the petition to the Ministry of Law & Justice, which refused the information on grounds of confidentiality and third party interests. In arriving at his decision, the CIC relied upon a judgment of Justice P.K. Bhagwati who had ruled against granting immunity from disclosure to the correspondence between the Law Minister, the Chief Justice of Delhi and the Chief Justice of India. Said Mr. Justice Bhagwati : "....Today the process of judicial appointments and transfers is shrouded in mystery. The exercise of the power of appointment and transfer remains a sacred ritual whose mystery is confined only to a handful of high priests, namely the Chief Justice of the High Court, the Chief Minister of the State, the Law Minister of the Central Government and the Chief Justice of India ... We do not see any reason why this process of appointment and transfer should be regarded as so sacrosanct that no one should be able to pry into it..."
