Re: [.RTI.] Re: [HumJanenge] Panel: Bring NGOs, PPPs under RTI

these are already under RTI. I have been able to get information from
many NGOs under RTI. but there should be some proof that these have
got some funding from the government directly or indirectly. Meaning
of indirectly: Got exemption from income tax department, got land at
concessional rates, got exemption in revenue payment while purchasing
land, got land at discretionary quota or similar benefits.
i have got many judgements of the punjab state information commission
which have ordered disclosure.
