    Default Cabinet clears proposal to keep political parties out of RTI

    In a significant development, the Cabinet on Thursday cleared the RTI Amendment Act and proposed that political parties should be kept out of its ambit.

    In a landmark ruling to ensure transparency in the functioning of political parties, the Central Information Commission on June 03 had held that the parties are public authorities and answerable to citizens under RTI Act.

    The commission, a quasi-judicial body, had said six national parties Congress, BJP, NCP, CPI-M, CPI and BSP have been substantially funded indirectly by the central government and they have the character of public authority under the RTI Act as they perform public functions.


    After the order of the full bench of CIC, the parties would have been answerable to the citizens regarding their source of funding, how they spend money and choice of candidates for elections, among other issues.

    The CIC had also directed the parties to appoint Public Information Officers to respond to RTI queries and adhere to all the legal provisions.

    The commission had based its decision on three important points raised by complainants -- substantial funding received by the parties from government, performance of public duty by them and legal provisions vesting them with rights and liabilities.

    The commission had said that since no income tax was paid by the parties, the exact quantum of rebate could not be quantified since income of all these political parties would place them in the highest slab of income tax, at least 30 per cent of their total income would have been collected as income tax but for the total exemption given to them by law.

    The CIC order specifically referred to the Congress, BJP, Communist Party of India, CPI (Marxist), Nationalist Congress Party and Bahujan Samaj Party. However, almost all parties, barring a few, vehemently opposed the ruling, accusing the CIC of overstepping its jurisdiction.

    RTI is the best thing that happened to Indian consumers in the last few decades.

    And they say that our government does not work or there is no work done in any parliament session.

    See how swiftly they took the decision. Soon they are gonna overrule SC verdict on criminalization in politics. At least on this matter all parties are on same page. Long live Indian democracy.
