RTI is fundamental right - What constitute fiduciary relationship

By : Dr. PRADEEP K.P. on 18 December 2010 Print Print this Report Abuse

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.
