If a private company is under law to abide by govt rules than one can access limited information from private company . for example on a complaint against private bank to banking ombudsman, ombudsman can seek all information and records from that private bank and make it available under rti act

Private companies are not public authorities under the RTI Act. However if these private companies have to file any document with any public authority in compliance of a regulatory requirement, then such documents can be obtained from the authorities with whom they have been filed.

 

Today's news reports indicate that the Maharashtra State Information Commission has ruled that RIL Infra comes under the ambit of the RTI Act. The CIC last month ruled that MIAL (Mumbai Intl Airport Ltd) is a public authority. These two are hard-fought landmark cases and they cannot be taken as the rule, but only as an exception.

Private companies are beyond the jurisdiction of RTI Act . Although some information about the companies can be had from PIO , O/o Registrar of Companies with which relevant company is registered .
