complaints of bribery in subordinate judiciary should no


Madras HC says complaints of bribery in the subordinate judiciary should not be disclosed under RTI.


"Information sought infringes on internal administration"

The Madras High Court has set aside an order of the Tamil Nadu Information Commission (TNIC) of January 2012 directing the court Registrar-General to furnish to an RTI applicant details relating to the number of subordinate judges, employees and complaints of bribery in the subordinate judiciary.
In its order allowing a writ petition by the Registrar-General challenging the TNIC direction of January 10, a Division Bench comprising Justices Elipe Dharma Rao and M.Venugopal did not agree with the Commission’s view that the applicant had asked “only for statistical details and not names of individuals.” The TNIC order was not sustainable in the eye of law, the Bench said.
