The finance ministry has told the Central Information Commission (CIC) that it does not have information about the loans given to industrialist Vijay Mallya, prompting the transparency panel to remark that the response was "vague and not sustainable as per law".


Chief Information Commissioner R K Mathur, while hearing the matter of one Rajiv Kumar Khare, told the finance ministry official that the Right to Information (RTI) application filed by the applicant should be transferred to the proper public authority.


The finance ministry official may have claimed that the ministry does not have information on the loans sanctioned by different banks to Mallya or the details of the guarantee given by Mallya against those loans, but the ministry had responded to questions in this regard in Parliament in the past.

May be this is a special decision given considering the importance of the case.

There are several doubts on Finance Ministry's reply.

First contradiction was when the information is not available why and how it can be denied stating that providing that information is against safety of a third party. (Heaven knows, how information of NPA of a fugitive , who misappropriated the public funds is not in larger public interest)

Finance Ministry officials are most intelligent and knowledgeable and always consult DOPT in very important cases.

First denial, and then stating that they have no information even when it is that Ministry that provided answer in Parliament appears strange.

If it is the Hon.IC Professor, he should have certainly directed Finance Ministry to collect information from all public sector banks and for uploading in the website of Finance Ministry.

Thank God, now he is restricted to only some unimportant ministry like Archaeology and restricted to making recommendations.
