    Ministers under RTI

    In a big decision, Central Information Commission have brought Ministers under RTI and declared Ministers in the Union Government and all State Governments as ‘public authorities’ under Section 2(h)of the RTI Act. The Ministers have a duty to inform the people about their efforts to fulfill the promises they have made, through Section 4(1)(b) of RTI Act and also to furnish the information as sought by their voters under other provisions of RTI Act. The commission has directed that a Public Information Officer within two months from the date of receipt of this order be appointed with each Minister Office. The Commission strongly recommends to implement the recommendations of NCRWC, Second ARC and replace the ‘oath of secrecy’ with ‘oath of transparency” so that the Minister will respect the right to information of the citizen, which was passed by the Parliament and considered as fundamental right intrinsic in Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution, and be answerable/accountable to the citizens. Ministers under RTI The question can came in front of CIC was Is ‘Minister’ a ‘public authority’? The Commission strongly recommended the Centre and States to provide necessary support to each minister, including designating some officers, or appointing as Public Information Officers and First Appellate Authorities. They also shall be given an official website for suo moto disclosure of the information with periodical updating as prescribed under Section 4 including the facility of meeting people since the Ministers deserve necessary assistance to receive, acknowledge and provide response to the representations given by the people and as Constitutional functionaries, the Ministers have a duty to inform the people about their efforts to fulfill the promises they have made, through Section 4(1)(b) of RTI Act and also to furnish the information as sought by their voters under other provisions of RTI Act.

  8. As reported at dnaindia.com on Sep 27, 2011 The government has spent nearly Rs42 crore on foreign visits by Union ministers during the last one year. The information provided in an RTI reply shows that while Cabinet ministers spent Rs 37.16 crore on their foreign visits, their junior colleagues, Ministers of State, spent about Rs4.76 crore on these visits bringing the total travel expenditure to Rs41.82 crore for the year 2010-11. The Cabinet Secretariat has given these consolidated figures of foreign visits expenses incurred by the Ministers to activist SC Agrawal after instructions from the Chief Information Commissioner Satyananda Mishra who directed it to make the disclosure. In the case, Agrawal had sought to know from the Cabinet Secretariat the travel details of Union ministers for the last three years, but he was told that information was "scattered" across different ministries and he would have to collect it from them separately. When the matter reached the Central Information Commission, the Cabinet Secretariat reiterated its position. The secretariat also noted that to collate the information, a large volume of records and documents would have to be scrutinised which would disproportionately divert the resources of the public authority. "While we tend to agree with the submission made by the respondents (Cabinet Secretariat), we think it would be in the interest of transparency if some key information about the domestic and international travel by Union ministers could be maintained centrally in Cabinet Secretariat itself, especially since the pay and accounts office under it is responsible for all accounting details for payment of the salary and reimbursement of their travel expenditure," CIC Satyananda Mishra had said in his order.
  9. As reported by The Hindu on February 1, 2009 New Delhi (PTI): The PMO has decided to keep the assets of ministers and their relatives under wraps saying information in this regard is exempted from the Right to Information Act. In a reply to the application of RTI applicant Subhash Chandra Agrawal, the PMO has termed the information as exempt under the Section 8 of the RTI Act and refused to divulge it for the same. The PMO had reportedly provided the details to the cabinet secretariat to facilitate answering of RTI applications in this regard but later took an about turn and denied the information to the applicant. Agrawal had filed an RTI application last year seeking seeking details of assets of Union Ministers and their relatives for the last two years from Cabinet Secretariat. The letter was forwarded to Prime Minister's Office for necessary action on the application. "In a letter dated May 19, 2008 the PMO provided the details of assets and liabilities of members of Union Council of Ministers to cabinet secretariat to deal with such RTI applications," Agrawal said. "But after that I did not get any response from either of the offices. I had even moved an application with the Central Information Commission in this regard," he added. After six months, PMO in a letter dated December 17, 2008 told Agrawal that the information sought could not be provided as it was exempt under the RTI Act provisions. The office sought exemption under clauses 8(1)(e) and 8(1)(j) which relate to immunity granted to "documents fiduciary relationship" and "Cabinet Documents" under the RTI Act, 2005 respectively.
