  8. Hello, This is rohit,I am middle class businessman ,recently I came across the judgement by the CIC regarding access of Spouse Income details I need to check my estranged wife's income details to prove her self dependency and financial stability.These details will help me to defend myself against the false dowry and domestic violence cases she had filed against me.This will also help me in negotiating the maintenance claimed by her. So to know this,how to and whom to approach. Can anyone guide me the process to be followed in this. Eagerly waiting for the informative responses. Thank you
  9. By Madabhushi Sridhar at Thehansindia.com on February 10, 2015 Right To Information Act - The Hans India Family as a unit cannot survive if the husband and wife differ and dispute. When marriage is on rocks, communication suffers and information is not exchanged. Without information the reconciliation or resolution will be impossible. Several times the estranged spouse seeks to know from the other several things which either to establish the allegation or innocence. More than this maintenance is the issue which demands knowledge of income, investments, assets and liabilities. The question is can law extend privacy between spouses or espouse exchange of monetary information? When right to information clashes with privacy of individual, the deciding factor is the public interest. If the family is fizzling out, justice demands decision on maintenance. Information is basic requirement. As the maintenance is part of life, this basic right covers the information too. The income information cannot remain within the walls of secrecy under the name of privacy. Though the salary information of public servant is public information, his bank accounts, income tax returns, loans and deductions were held to be private and personal through judicial pronouncements and CIC verdicts. That remains the same except for married couples. When everything goes well, none claim privacy. As need to information arises in dispute, the fight for secrecy intensifies. The right to income-related-information has evolved from this context. The Delhi High Court saw greater public interest in exchanging the information voluntarily between disputing spouses. It is not just right of wife to know the income details of husband. It is vice versa too. This RTI is also not confined to public servants. Though the RTI Act did not give RTI to spouses in private service, the Delhi High Court insisted filing of affidavits explaining several monetary details. On the jurisprudential basis of this landmark judgment, the RTI between spouses is extended to cover income, assets, investments, liability and status of spouses ‘voluntarily’. In a significant second appeal I have held that right to information between spouses extends to information about income, investments and assets. It is pathetic story of Prashansa Sarma, who was allegedly starved, deserted and denied the maintenance. She sought to know details of husband’s property including that were given in dowry and action details for attempting to commit bigamy, etc. She questioned the way PIO washed-off hands on lame excuse of ‘sub judice’. She wanted to know why there was no inquiry against him for dowry demand, dual employment, domestic violence, making of her MMS while changing dress, etc. She questioned non-furnishing of annual property returns, not taking action for suppression of information about Hyundai car, Rs 50 lakh worth gold etc in his annual returns. The First Appellate Authority did not apply mind at all and simply rejected the appeal. The Rule 5 of Central Civil Service (Conduct) Rules expects the Conduct of Government Servant in relation to the proper maintenance of his family. It has been held that neglect by a Government servant of his wife and family in a manner unbecoming of a Government servant may be regarded as a good and sufficient reason to justify action being taken against him under this rule. It is the legal right of spouse to claim maintenance. The rule says that department cannot make the employee to maintain his wife, but it does not mean that departmental action cannot be initiated against him for neglecting his wife and family as clearly stated under Para 2 of the above rule. Acceptance or demand of dowry by the public servant is misconduct. The CCS Rules do not allow a married Government employee to advertise for bride before divorce. Section 4(1) (b) of RTI Act, imposed a mandate to disclose among other things the salary of the public servants. To that extent i.e., income as salary of public servant is not personal or private information. Spouse or any other person can ask for it. Some documents like IT Returns, pay-slip which explain deductions and loans were declared as personal or third party information. In Kusum Sharma v. Mahinder Kumar Sharma (FAO 369/1996 decided on January 14, 2015), Delhi High Court directed both spouses to file affidavits about their income, assets and investments and listed out the documents to be attached including certain documents which were earlier held to be personal or third party information. The long list includes information about salary, income from business, earnings since marriage and income from other sources, assets like immovable and movable properties, investments including bank accounts, demat accounts, cash FDRs etc, stocks, LIC policy, gadgets, household appliances, gold and silver etc, liabilities like loans, details of expenditure and general information regarding standard of living and lifestyle and educational or professional qualification including details of occupation was no more personal between the spouses and each spouse should have right to access it. This information about assets, income and investments of spouses is no more private or personal as against spouses. Though such information could be personal or private as against any person other than spouse, the proviso to Section 8(1) (j) read with Section 8(2) of the Right to Information Act entitled the appellant to get such information because of overwhelming public interest in securing the lives of deserted wives. The rules are: a. The spouses have right to information between them. b. The husband of appellant has a duty to provide all that information to his wife based on rights of marriage as per family law. c. Certain documents like annual returns of assets, investments, IT returns etc are not private or personal or third party information, especially for maintenance purposes. d. The PIOs cannot reject the spouse’s request for such information on the ground of Section 8(1) (j) saying it is personal information, because the protection of privacy is overridden by the huge public interest in maintaining wives. The larger public interest in maintenance of wives and children, prevention of domestic violence, etc., demands its disclosure. e. The income-related-information becomes the life related information when wife is not being maintained, and that should be given within 48 hours according to proviso to Section 7(1) of RTI Act, 2005. The PIO and the husband of the appellant were summoned to explain obstruction, delay and denial of information.

  14. 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. Transparency is essential for a healthy democracy and robust economy. The first respondent was right in directing that the information should be given.” ***
