Any Citizen can seek information under RTI Act. The applicant need not give any reason for seeking information.


CPIO or Public Authority (PA) may resort to pro-active disclosure of more and more information as enumerated under Section 4(2) of the RTI Act, to minimize use of RTI Act for seeking information & reduce PA's work load. PA can also upload such information in PA's Official Website.

If the employee is a citizen of India and the organization is a public authority then the employee can ask for all information he wants without giving any reason. Of course, he will have to pay for the information as per the rules in this regard.

The employer has no jurisdiction to decide whether or not the information is in public/personal interest.
