HC to DMRC: Disclose crashed pillar's design

The Delhi high court on Friday directed the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to disclose the design of an under-construction pillar at Zamrudpur in south Delhi that collapsed last year, killing six people. The court issued the order while dismissing the DMRC's appeal against a Central Information Commission (CIC) order of March 18, 2010, asking it to reveal the design to architect Sudhir Vohra under the RTI Act. "The details of the design are already on the internet and, therefore, in the public domain. In the circumstances, the disclosure of such design can hardly be said to prejudicially affect the security, strategic, scientific or economic interests of the DMRC (as claimed by it). Consequently, this court finds no ground having been made out by the DMRC for interfering with the impugned order passed by the CIC", said Justice S Muralidhar.
