Order from RTI commissioner's office sparks of debate

An order given by the state Right to Information (RTI) commissioner office saying that information available on public domains should not be demanded under the RTI Act has sparked off a debate among activists. Appellant Bhagvan Nivadekar of Kothrud had demanded information regarding the rules related to the records of 7/12 abstract at the tehsil office, Haveli. Speaking to TOI, Nivadekar said, "As per the RTI Act, the information that I was seeking should have been available at the tehsil office, but it was not so. Which is why I took recourse of the RTI Act, but even then the information was not given to me. Consequently, I appealed to the higher authorities and then to the RTI commissioner. I was shocked by their reply where I was duly advised not to seek information available on a public domain. This is not right or in accordance with the law."
