Views: 232

The Central Information Commission has issued directives that Posting information on Government websites may not be enough under the Right to Information (RTI) Act. In addition to making the information available online public authorities need to make available printed or CD copies of information to RTI applicants even if the same data is available online.

This decision was reached in the process of responding to an appeal filed by Chandigarh resident Harish Kochhar against the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), which repeatedly referred him to its official website in answer to his RTI queries.
