Re: [rti_india] Re: Fwd: [Indiarti] CIC to approach SC as ICs refuse to work


Dear All,

It has already been decided that, Supreme Court is a Public Authority covered under the RTI Act.

Hence by virtue of that, it has already been decided (established) that CJI's Office too is covered under the RTI Act.

The former CJI felt that this would affect the Independence of Judiciary, and hence wrote to the Legislature, to intervene and introduce a Bill to exempt the CJI's office, from the purview of the RTI Act.

Also for the same reason an appellate review has been sought from the Supreme Court itself.

That seems to be the present status of the debate in this thread.
