Dear Lokeshji,

CIC's full bench order is there on sharing file notings. The order of CIC in the matter between Pyarelal Verma v/s Ministry of Railways is available vide CIC/OK/A/2006/00154. Search it from CIC's website and rely upon this order. This is a full bench order wherein DoPT was made a party to the matter as respondent for uploading on its site that file notings are not in public domain. Now after full bench's order this had been retracted and file notings are in public domain even if the same pertain to quasi judicial orders. Happy information seeking.

any Decisions in this regard which can be refered to

 

Why are you jumping the gun ?

 

You apply for whatever information you want.

Leave it to the PIO to decide whether he should disclose it or not and if not, under what section.

Then you file first appeal where you will need citations.

You do not need any citations now.

Dear All,

Karira Sir is right in saying why jumping gun. However, my intention in placing it before the forum was to exhort members to annex this order to their application. This would mean that PIO has been forewarned on sharing of file notings. This may avoid undue delay. Happy information seeking.

A quasi-judicial order is a statutory decision, passed under certain Rules and Regulations. Such an order is in exercise of certain powers vested with the authority who passed it. Therefore, such an order is in public domain and accessible under RTI Act. As already suggested, denial must be supported by sound reasoning within the meaning of Sec-8(1).

This can be counterproductive at times.

The PIO can use other sections to deny information (just to prolong the issue).

The PIO will also come to know the methodology of your thought process.

 

Why reveal all your cards in the beginning itself ?

Very true. Despite being on the right side of the law, you need to have a strategy, and be very alert to probable maneuvering by the other side that can injure your cause.
