Guidelines For The Information Seekers Under the RTI Act, 2005

Exemptions from Disclosure

The right to seek information from a public authority is not absolute. Sections 8 and 9 of the Act enumerate the categories of information which are exempt from disclosure. At the same time Schedule II of the Act contains the names of the Intelligence and Security Organizations which are exempt from the purview of the Act. The exemption of the organization, however, does not cover supply of information relating to allegations of corruption and human rights violations.

The applicants should abstain from seeking information which is exempt under Section 8 and 9 and also from the organizations included in the Second Schedule except information relating to allegations of corruption and human right violations.

State Public Information Officers

Application for seeking information should be made to an officer of the public authority who is designated as Public Information Officer (SPIO). All the public authorities have designated their State Public Information Officer and have posted their particulars on their respective web-sites. This information is also available on the â€RTI PORTAL’ ( Persons seeking information are advised to refer to the web-site of the concerned public authority of the ‘RIT PORTAL’ for ascertaining the name of the concerned SPIO. If it is found difficult to identify or locate the concerned State Public Information Officer of a public authority, application may be sent to the State Public Information Officer without specifying the name of the SPIO at the address of the public authority.
