karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaEWS medical records aren't public info: SIC GURGAON: Ruling that medical records of patients belonging to the economically weaker section are "personal information", the state information commission has ordered HUDA and city-based private hospitals not to disclose them. "Medical records are personal information, exempt from disclosure under Section 8(1) (j) of the RTI Act," reads state information commissioner Urvashi Gulati's order on January 10. The info panel's order came in the wake of a complaint by a city-based RTI activist, Aseem Takyar, against "the half-baked and unconfirmed information" provided by the HUDA on his RTI query, seeking information on details pertaining to free beds in three city-based private hospitals. But, the state information commission has ruled, "In this case, no large public interest has been established by the complainant to warrant disclosure of information." Takyar had filed his RTI query on September 14, 2013, and got a response from HUDA about a year later. Dissatisfied with it, he had filed a complaint on September 15 last year before the commission, following which an inquiry was ordered on December 1. Takyar is now planning to move the Punjab and Haryana high court against the state info panel's order. "We will file a petition in the high court so that a mechanism can be established to ensure that the patient details provided by the hospitals can be verified. We don't want to access any identification number or invoices, but only want to check the authenticity of the info by the hospitals," he said.
