Defence Ministry's request for exemption under RTI rejected
The Defence Ministry's request for exemption from the Right to Information Act has been turned down by the Committee of Secretaries which has asked it to come up with a fresh proposal if it wants the benefit for its intelligence wing. The Committee meeting, chaired by Cabinet Secretary K M Chandrasekhar, also rejected a similar request from the CBI for exemption and inclusion in the second schedule of the RTI, under which as many as 22 organisations have been included for whom the Act was not applicable, official sources said today.
