Agency not under RTI Act’s ambit

as reported in Times of India22 Oct 2008, TNN,


The Corps of Detectives (CoD) is the state’s equivalent of the Centre’s CBI. The staff of this premier agency are not involved in day-to-day law-and-order issues or crimes. Normally, complicated and sensational cases are handed over to the CoD for focused investigation.


The CoD was established in 1974 to investigate major crimes and cases involving economic and financial offences. The objective was to achieve maximum results in detection of crimes and inspire public confidence in police administration.


It has several squads: homicide, burglary, fraud, counterfeit, arms and explosives, anti-smuggling, special enquiry, anti-dowry cell, anti-dacoity squad.


Cases related to custodial death, dowry death, gun-running and counterfeit currency are automatically taken up by the CoD. It is exempted from the ambit of Right to Information Act, 2005. CoD comes under the administrative control of the home department. Its chief (DGP) is answerable to the DG & IGP, home secretary, home minister and the chief minister.
