Complainant had filed RTI application in capacity as Manager of Bank, hence did not qualify as RTI application : CIC


Recommended Posts


Complainant had sought information on four points regarding an employee of respondent.


Commission observed that; complainant had filed RTI application and first appeal in the capacity as 'Manager', The Delhi State Co Operative Bank Ltd, Delhi.His name was not mentioned in RTI application and appeal to FAA. His complaint to the Commission was also filed in the above capacity as 'Manager' of bank. So his application did not qualify as an RTI application under RTI Act 2005. Complaint is dismissed.

Hon IC must have seen the issue in a constructive/helpful attitude. Tell me what makes a difference whether Manager gives his designation instead of name. Now the applicant can file another RTI Application and can seek same information, but there may be delay. Why a Manager should take such information in his official capacity ? Is it not his official duty to protect the interest of the Bank. When PIO/FAA has not objected it Hon IC pointing and denying the same appears strange as he is overlooking several fundamentals of RTI Act like payment of RTI fee in Court fee though it is not permitted. What is the ultimate purpose ? Giving information and larger public interest. If a Bank manager files RTI Application, as to why tax is not deducted, is it not larger public interest . Some issues are discussed in one way and not at desired way.
