  2. Hi, I have filed one RTI through an online portal to get income details, Investment Details & Expenditure details of my wife which CPIO has denied information stating that third party information cannot be disclosed without the consent of my wife and she has strongly denied it in writing. As I am fighting maintenance case and false dowry case in the court, it is very important for me to get atleast generic information like net taxable income of wife. I am going to file 1st appeal under 19(1). I want to know whether I can request CPIO to provide atleast 'Generic information' like 'Net taxable income or gross income particulars of wife', looking at the sensitivity of the reason behind desire for disclosure of information sought and in the interest of justice? I mean can i change or reduce the information asked from 'complete details' to only net taxable income/ gross salary details. Thanks
  3. Reported by Economictimes.indiatimes.com on 19 Jan, 2014 Wife has right to know husband's salary: Central Information Commission - The Economic Times NEW DELHI: Wives of government servants have a "right" to know salary particulars of their husbands and these details should also be made public by their offices as mandated under suo-moto disclosure clause of the RTI Act, the Central Information Commission has held. Information Commissioner M Sridhar Acharyulu said every spouse has a right to information about the salary particulars of the other especially for the purpose of maintenance. "More so, wife has a right to know the salary particulars of the husband, who is an employee of the public authority," he said. The commissioner further said that the details about a government employee's salary is no third party information and these have to be voluntarily disclosed under Section 4(1)(b)(x) of the RTI Act. He said the salary paid to the public authority is sourced from the tax paid by the people in general and it has to be disclosed mandatorily under the RTI section. "The information about the salary of employee or an officer of the same public authority cannot be considered as a third party information... Public authorities cannot reject such RTI applications about salary under the pretext of the third party information," he held. Acharyulu warned the Home Department of Delhi government that such denial of information will be wrongful and could incur penalty. The warning was in context of an application filed by Jyoti Seherawat seeking salary slip of her husband who is employed at the Home (General) department. The information was denied as her husband gave in written to the department that such an information should not be provided to anyone.

  10. Dear All, Please find below the web link to news item appearing in Indian Express about the appointment of three Information Commissioners. harinder dhingra Quote " The husband of a sitting high court judge who is hearing many cases against the Haryana government, the wife of Chief Minister Bhupinder Hooda’s political advisor, and the CM’s advisor (health) — these are the three new state information commissioners selected by the state government on Wednesday. They are likely to be sworn in before Governor Jagannath Pahadia’s term ends on July 26. The decision was taken at a meeting of the statutory committee on Wednesday, chaired by Hooda and attended by Education Minister Geeta Bhukkal. The third member of the committee, Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Om Prakash Chautala, did not attend the meeting. However, Chautala recorded his dissent in a note to Hooda. Many cases against the state government are pending in the court of Justice Daya Chaudhary, whose husband, Dr Amar Singh, a retired Excise and Taxation department officer, is among those selected for the post. These include the issue of multiple allotments of residential plots by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA). The others who have been picked are: Rekha, the wife of Hooda’s political advisor Professor Virender Singh, and Shiv Raman Gaur, the CM’s retired additional principal secretary who was recently re-employed as his advisor (health). In his dissent note, Chautala urged the CM to stop the appointments. “It will only result in wrongfully extending the benefits of political patronage to persons like Smt Rekha, Amar Singh and Shiv Raman Gaur, who otherwise are not eligible for appointment as the state information commissioners,” he said. “Such appointments should be of persons of eminence in the field of law, administration and management etc., as stipulated in the 2005 Right to Information enactment of the Parliament of India. Is it not correct, for example, that the lady… has no qualification other than being the spouse of your so-called political advisor, and earns her livelihood from the education department of Haryana?” Justifying the decision, Bhukkal said, “The screening committee scrutinises the applications of interested people who have applied for the post. The screening committee forwarded us the names and we gave our approval. There is nothing wrong in this.” On the decision to pick Amar Singh and Rekha, Bhukkal said, “Both must have applied for the post in their individual capacity. Many retired judges also want to be appointed state information commissioners. If a judge’s husband has been selected, there is nothing wrong.” Both Rekha and her husband did not respond to repeated phone calls and text messages. When contacted, Amar Singh refused to comment. Justice Daya Chaudhary was also not available for comment. The Haryana Information Commission has a chief information commissioner and seven information commissioners at present. According to the rules on selection of information commissioners, the candidates “should be persons of eminence in public life with wide knowledge and experience in law, science and technology, social service, management, journalism, mass media or administration and governance. The information commissioners should not be a Member of Parliament or Member of Legislature of any state or union territory, or hold any other office of profit,or connected with any political party, or carrying on any business or pursuing any profession.” The information commissioners remain in office for a term of five years or till he/she attains the age of 65 years, whichever is earlier. They enjoy the same salary and allowances as that of the state chief secretary." UNQUOTE The news item can be viewed at following web-link also.

  15. In a matter related to disclosure of Income Tax details of a spouse, the CIC has ruled that a spouse cannot be treated as "third party" as long as the marriage subsists: It appears to me that there is estrangement between the husband and the wife. The wives generally try to collect this information for canvassing their cases in the Family Courts for grant of maintenance. A wife can not be treated as third party in the strict sense of the term, so long as the marriage subsists. However, after divorce, the legal position changes. I am told that marriage still subsists between the appellant and Shri Shobhit Garg. Hence, it will not be correct to deny information on the ground that the appellant is a third party. In the given facts, I order that gross income and net taxable income declared by Shri Shobhit Garg in the last ITR filed by him, may be disclosed to the appellant. No other information is required to be disclosed. Full order is attached to this post. Spouse not a third party if marriage subsists.pdf

  23. Dear All An application seeking information under RTI Act regarding the annual gross income details of the Deputy Manager was made to PIO of TNPL. It was declined on the ground that it is of personal nature and that it would not be revealed to a third person without the authorisation of the employee concerned. On appeal, State Information Commission held that the information must be given immediately. The Deputy Manager, aggrieved filed writ petition to quash the order of Commission contending that the information relates to personal information and the disclosure of which has no relationship to any public activity or interest and it would cause unwarranted invasion of the privacy of a person. High Court observed that under Section 4 (x) of RTI Act public authority is obliged to maintain all its records and has to publish the monthly remuneration received by each of its officers and employees, including the system of compensation. Further under Sub-section 2 the public authority should provide this information suo motu through various means of communications. High Court therefore, held that public authority was under a statutory obligation to make available the information relating to the monthly remuneration received by each of the officers and employees. In fact, it is not necessary for any person to seek this information if TNPL had discharged its obligation under Section 4. The High Court held like this: “6. The next objection is with relation to the nature of information sought for. Section 4 of the Act deals with the obligation of the public authority to do the following: (a) maintain all its records duly catalogued and indexed in a manner and the form which facilitates the right to information under this Act and ensure that all records that are appropriate to be computerized are, within a reasonable time and subject to availability of resources, computerized and connected through a network all over the country on different systems so that access to such records is facilitated. (b) publish within one hundred and twenty days from the enactment of this Act,-- (i) .. (x) the monthly remuneration received by each of its officers and employees, including the system of compensation as provided in its regulations; (ix)... (xvi) the names, designations and other particulars of the Public Information Officers; Sub-section (2) provides that the public authority should endeavour constantly to provide this information suo motu at regular intervals through various means of communications including the internet. Subsection (3) provides that every information should be disseminated widely and in such form and manner which is easily accessible to the public. Subsection (4) provides dissemination of information by taking into consideration the local language and cost effective method of communication. 7. Section 8 of the Act reads as follows: Exemption from disclosure of information.- (1) Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act, there shall be no obligation to give any citizen,-- (a) ... (j) information which relates to personal information the disclosure of which has no relationship to any public activity or interest, or which would cause unwarranted invasion of the privacy of the individual unless the Central Public Information Officer or the State Public Information Officer or the appellate authority, as the case may be, is satisfied that the larger public interest justifies the disclosure of such information: Provided that the information which cannot be denied to the Parliament or a State Legislature shall not be denied to any person. It is clear therefore, that TNPL was under a statutory obligation to make available, interalia on the internet, the information relating to the monthly remuneration received by each of the officers and employees including the system of compensation as provided in its Regulations. It is obvious that TNPL has not done so. In fact, it is not necessary for any person to seek this information if TNPL had discharged its obligation under Section 4. The information would have been available on the internet to any person who is interested.” High Court also rejected the other objection that it is a personal information which has no relationship to any public activity or interest or which would cause unwarranted invasion of the privacy of a person. The petitioner receives his salary from a public sector undertaking and it is subject to the provisions of Income Tax. Therefore, there is nothing secret about the income received by him. Further it also cannot be stated that the disclosure has no relationship to any public activity or interest. The income received by an individual from a public sector undertaking cannot be private information. The High Court held: “8. As regards the objection that it is a personal information which has no relationship to any public activity or interest or which would cause unwarranted invasion of the privacy of a person, this deserves to be rejected. The petitioner receives his salary from a public sector undertaking and as stated in the counter filed by the respondents 2 and 3 it is subject to the provisions of Income Tax. Therefore, there is nothing secret about the income received by him. Further it also cannot be stated that the disclosure has no relationship to any public activity or interest. The case of the fourth respondent is, if this information is disclosed it would show that the petitioner's wife would not satisfy one of the criteria subject to which the LPG distributorship is allotted. This allotment of distributorship cannot be arbitrary and contrary to rules and if there is some factor which would vitiate the selection process, then it would definitely be a matter of public interest. In any event, the income received by an individual from a public sector undertaking cannot be private information. Information relating for example as to whether a particular person is tested HIV positive might be a matter which intrudes into the privacy of the individual, but not the monthly income which a person is receiving from a public sector undertaking which is subject to income tax. 9. The other objection raised is that, as on date the writ petitioner has resigned from TNPL and therefore, the information that is now sought for would not be the information relating to an employee, but an erstwhile employee. This objection cannot be entertained because the petitioner was an employee of TNPL when he filed the writ petition. He obtained stay. During the currency of stay, pending the writ petition, he resigned and he cannot now take advantage of that fact. The matter will have to be dealt with according to the status of the petitioner on the date of application and on the date of the impugned order. The decision to allot the distributorship will be tested according to the circumstances that prevailed on the date of decision. 13. One of the objectives to this right to information is eradication of ineffective governance and corrupt governance. Corruption is now recognized as violation of human rights. Good transparency practices are essential for good governance and it includes maximum disclosure; obligation to publish; promotion of open government; limited scope of exceptions; minimum costs; processes that facilitate access; open meetings; precedence of disclosure; and protection of whistle-blowers. The civil society must be unrelenting in its efforts to ensure that the government at all levels reaches a reasonable standard in affording public information to the citizens. Sometimes even harmless information is not made available. When what is asked for is just ordinary data, data that any interested tax-paying citizen has a right to know - a human right, even where no national secrets that threaten public interest are asked for - it is not furnished. This access to information is more vitally important in developing countries. It is very necessary that the ordinary person is enabled to participate in the processes that affect daily life and he has empowered with the information to play an effective role in policy-making and legislative decision-making. To promote broader political participation, there should be accountability and transparency of government, to prevent the criminalization of policy, there should be free flow of information. These are the reasons why the Act came into force. The Government should have the will to make the shift from being niggardly in providing access to information.
