Show Summary Details


This chapter considers the different information categories that are not liable to disclosure. It provides a detailed discussion of each of the 11 exemptions, while considering the different decisions of the high courts, the Supreme Court, and the CIC. Some of these exemptions are in relation to the security, foreign relations, and economic interests of the country, the information that was received in confidence from a foreign government, and copyright infringement. The last section of the chapter is on the non-applicability of the RTI Act, 2005 to the organizations that are specified in the Second Schedule. The chapter also identifies the different limitations that are faced by the National Sub-Committee of Chief Information Commissioners and the CIC, as they fulfil their roles as regulators and adjudicators.
