Justice S. Siri Jagan of the Kerala High Court held that Right to Information is not a mere statutory right created by an Act but essentially is a fundamental right. It was also held that there is no fiduciary relationship between a public authority and an examiner engaged by the public authority to attract the exemption clauses in Section 8, when a candidate applied for the copy of his answer paper under RTI Act. Thus candidate is entitled for copy of his answer paper on filing a RTI application under S.6.
My application under RTIA 2005 with Southern Railway dt 24-07-09 is disposed with false and insufficient information after486 days after hearing by Hon'ble Commissioner, my second application dt. 28-11-2009 is disposed by Southern Railways with insufficient information after 382 days after hearing by Hon'ble Commissioner. The Hon'ble Commissioner did not punish the Appl. Authority, PIO and APIO. This is my fate yaar. I am filing Appeal with Hon'ble CIC. This is the RTIA yaar.
RTI act when passed through parliament then any addition and deletion or qualification also should be referred to parliament but the government is doing all such things arbitrarily which is a death knell
