Mumbai : In a landmark order, the Central Information Commission has ruled that CCTV footage of a public place is in the public domain and cannot be denied to a citizen.

 

The case pertains to Mumbai-based RTI activist Chetan Kothari, who wanted the CCTV footage of the incident when a UCO bank cashier at Bhulabhai Desai Road misbehaved him.

 

“The man ahead of me in the queue got Rs 1,000 in the denomination of Rs ten but when I asked for it, the cashier, Ganpat Dongera, was rude to me,’’ said Kothari. The incident happened on November 3, 2012.

 

Unsatisfied with the action taken by the bank — merely instructing the employee concerned to be polite — Kothari asked for the service record of Dongera as well as the CCTV record of the incident.
