The information is obtained from the Government Departments, and most of the information, even otherwise should be part of the public domain as per the RTI Act. Therefore, sharing such information should not be anyway prohibited from social media.

 

Secondly, in case of third party information, you have got the information considering it is in large public interest to disclose such information. And therefore, again there should not be any hinderance in sharing the information in the social media.

 

You do not require any permission to share any information also.

Generally, the trend is other way round.

Most of the activists never require that information for bringing to a logical conclusion,

and prefer to publish it as an achievement of theirs with RTI,

mostly targeting selected officials.

Once you taste such publicity success, you become a slave to such publicity.

Now compare with our forum Chief Architect Hon CJK, he always goes to Media to get a logical conclusion in larger public interest, to mobilise and involve Administration. He being basically a Technocrat businessman, confined to low profile and not an advocate, is not getting due attention, as he can not file PILs on his own and to spend huge personal amounts and face criticism from Hon Judges and I know once even Hon Judge asked for IT Returns of him. Still those who are sincere in RTO, considers him as a force to reckon, and he quotes his achievements only as examples during training PIOs in workshops free of cost.

Just publish your rti application and their reply as it is. No comments, let the public think themselves. I strongly recommend to go public via social media from my last experience (I didn't) . Even if you don't like publicity it will benefit others.

In fact, as per DoPT circular every Central Govt. public authority is supposed to suo-motu upload all RTI applications, PIO's responses to the same, Appeals and Response to the Appeals, on their website, after removing personal information.

 

In this regard, please refer to the Central Govt's DoPT Office Memorandum, the relevant excerpts of which are as follows:

 

Attention is invited to DOPT's guidelines on suo motu disclosure issued vide O.M. No.1/6/2011-IR dated 15.4.2013 whereby Public Authorities have an obligation to proactively disclose RTI applications and appeals received by them and their responses on their websites.

 

It may be noted that RTI applications and appeals received and their responses relating to the personal information of an individual may not be disclosed, if they do not serve any public interest.

      One of my friends resigned from a PSU and they took nearly 2 years for his formal relieving & settlement of dues. He was a star performer there & they were reluctant to 'let him go'. Now, he has sought information regarding delay in disposing up his case. To this, the PIO has replied that 'reasons sought' can not be defined as 'information' under section 2(f) of RTI Act. Moreover, on asking for the list of reminders sent by him & the reasons for no reply, the PIO replied that 'the information sought is not specific as per section 2(f) of RTI Act'.
      Can the RTI community enlighten us on this aspect please?
