Private educational Societies which runs these schools are not, per se, under RTI but these societies are controlled by Society Registation Acts in various states. Since they come under control of the Govt. in some ways, this fact must be leveraged intelligently to get information out of the Society through the Registrar. There in lies the challenge. There are several case studies/CIC/SIC/HC rulings to help you. Main point here the definition of information as defined in Section 2f - "information" means any material in any form, including records, documents, memos, e-mails, opinions, advices, press releases, circulars, orders, logbooks, contracts, reports, papers, samples, models, data material held in any electronic form and information relating to any private body which can be accessed by a public authority under any other law for the time being in force;
