August 6th, 2006 at 4:12 pm eshri anna believes that term “information” as defined in sec 2-f includes material any any form including ” records, documents, memos, e-mails, opinions, advises, press releases, circulars, orders, logbooks, contracts, repports, papers, samples, models, data material, held in any form” etc.
there is specific exclusion section 8. it therefore stands to reason that any file is accessible under sec 2 (j) as records include file in sec 2 (i) (a).
since the definitions in sec 2 are comprehensive, thet the term file is included in record and documents and since these were not in sec 8 exclusions, ” file notings” are part of file and are accessible toany citizen.
therefore anna is objecting to amendment removing file notings without mentioning reasons for such removal to the citizens who have fundamental right of informaton under the constitution.
- RTI is fundmental right and even parliament can not remove this right by constitution amendment as it is core of the constitution and against the provisions under the premable to the constitution as wellas to the RTI Act.
