HC notice to BCI on right to information Act

A division bench of the Patna high court comprising Chief Justice Rekha Manharlal Doshit and Justice Jyoti Saran on Thursday issued a notice to the Bar Council of India (BCI) to file a counter affidavit to a writ petition of one Nonu Singh, who has challenged the validity of a resolution of the BCI that the BCI and the State Bar Councils are not a public authority under the provisions of the Right To Information (RTI) Act to give information under this Act. The case will be heard next on December 19, 2010. Petitioner's counsel Dinu Kumar submitted that Nonu Singh had sought information under the RTI Act on the movement of a file relating to the professional conduct of the advocate general and other lawyers, which had been rejected by the BCI.
