Information under RTI Act includes 'file notings' and the public authority is bound to disclose them, if sought for. 36/ICPB/2006 - 26 June,2006

The Commission noted with serious concern that some public authorities were denying request for inspection of file notings and supply copies thereof to the applicants despite the fact that the RTI Act, 2005 does not exempt file notings from disclosure. The reason they were citing for non-disclosure of ‘file notings’ was the information posted on the DOPT website[www.righttoinformation.gov.in] to the effect that ‘information’ did not include file notings. Thus the DOPT website was creating a lot of unnecessary and avoidable confusion in the minds of the public authorities. The Commission hereby directs the Secretary, Ministry of Personnel & Public Grievances, in exercise of powers conferred on it under Section 19(8) of the Right to
Information Act, 2005 to remove the instruction relating to non disclosure of file notings from the website within 5 days of the issue of this order failing which the Commission shall be constrained to proceed against the Ministry of Personnel.CIC/OK/A/2006/00154 – 13 July,2006
