In a landmark ruling, CIC has ruled that Research papers and PhD Thesis cannot be termed as "personal" information or "third party" information and are disclosable under RTI.

 

The full order is attached to this post.

I have my own doubts, as it may infringe the copy rights of individual. Let us wait for further developments as this decision circumstances are peculiar and larger public interest is involved about the originality of the paper, as appellant has alleged malafide intentions of plagiarism and using her research paper by another as his own and getting Phd.

Sir,

Already a decision of CIC says that thesis papers are intellectual property of an individual , they come under section 8(1)(d) and hence need not be disclosed. This decision seems to be contrary to the above decision. Let us wait what Delhi High Court says.

 

Yours Sincerely,

Dr.S.N.Venkatesan

But Thesis papers are already in the public domain.....just walk into any library in a University or a Research Institute and you will find them there.In fact, in some cases, they are available on the Internet also:Shodhganga – INFLIBNET for Onilne Ph.D. Thesis of Indian Universities | india vidya
