Re: [RTI INDIA] Re: A Minor's Right to Information

There is no provision for prosecution of any applicant or appellant/complainant in RTI Act 2005, since its Sections 19(5) and 20(1) loudly and clearly put the burden of proof only on the PIO. When there is no provision as such for prosecuting an applicant/appellant/complainant at all, the question of prosecuting a minor doesn't arise.

Curious to know what will happen if a Minor applies for information
and the PIO supplies information to him/her too.

Can the PIO (and the Minor ? )  be prosecuted for doing something NOT
ALLOWED under the law ?
