Lions Club ex-governor told to give info under RTI

The Punjab State Information Commission directed a former district governor of
Lions' Club International to provide information on income, expenditure and bank
statements of the club under the RTI Act. State Information Commissioner Lt Gen P K Grover (Retd) has marked a copy of the order to Neville A Mehta, International Secretary, India, South Asia and East Africa, Lions' Club International, Mumbai, for taking cognisance. Grover took the decision while hearing the case of Parbodh Chander Bali of Amritsar who had sought information from Rajiv Kukreja, the then governor of
district 321-D, Lions' Club International, Tanda Urmar (Hoshiarpur), on March 11. On not getting a response, he filed an appeal with the first appellate authority on April 21 and subsequently with the commission on August 17. Bali submitted that the club was financed by the government, directly and indirectly, and therefore fell within the purview of the RTI Act.
