In camera proceedings before the CIC

The Appellant sought to inspect claim applications for 13th Press council made by certain Journalists Union and copies thereof. The CIC directed the PIO to appear in person before the bench alongwith relevant files for the ‘in-camera’ hearing to explain the denial of information under Section 8(1)(d), (j) and (e) of RTI Act. The CIC perused the records in detail and observed that apart from general information regarding the constitution, registration of the unions there are innumerable personal details of their members as well as financial details of the respective unions therein which cannot be even severed for provision. Observing that the no larger public interest has been claimed by the applicant, the CIC upheld the denial of information.


Just like any other Court, the CIC too holds ‘in camera’ proceedings. In case the information cannot be severed, the information can be denied to the RTI Applicant.
