Question

sidhares

Hi,

 

I wanted to know if

 

Private aided and unaided schools come under the pruview of RTI Act.

If yes, then what is the information that one can seek and is a restriction as to who can seek the information under RTI.

Will it be possible for an individual(who may not be related to that institution in anyway) to demand a personal(the appellant) inspection of the records(financial, infrastructral) with the help of RTI ??

 

Thanks

If the school receives funds from government, it is a public authority and you can file RTI application with the school.

If the school is unaided, it is not a public authority. In that case you can file RTI application with District Education officer and ask for information related to the school.

Kindly let me have the law if anybody asks for some information under RTI from any unaided private school (affiliated to CBSE or ICSE Board) through the Education Department.

 

As I understand the RTI Act does not apply on private institutions.

 

Kindly let me have the citations, if any.

 

Thanks

aided schools are covered under RTI .

Private schools are required to provide some data on their working to related DEO . So this may be obtained from relevant DEO , nothing more .

Sir,

Private unaided school who gets some kind of relief some kind of aid in the following form comes under RTI?

1) Relief in form of allotment of concession in acquiring the plot of school.

2) Discount in electric and rent for running the education institute.

3) Discount in the income tax on the fees paid by parents to the school.

4) Any other kind of relief from the government.

 

If it comes under RTI perview because of the above relief. How can we get from the government regarding the unaided school getting the relief from the government? :confused:

Please guide.

A school called Sanskriti School in New Delhi was declared under RTI, on similar grounds as stated by you.

The Dehi HC also reaffirmed the decision.
