Husband’s salary details through RTI can’t be disclosed : Bombay HC

IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUDICATURE AT BOMBAY NAGPUR BENCH, NAGPUR

WRIT PETITION No.1766 OF 2016

Rajesh Ramchandra Kidile

vs

The Maharashtra State Information Commission Bench at Nagpur & others

 

The Bombay High Court has held that information relating to salary details of the husband cannot be disclosed in an RTI application filed by wife’s lawyer.

The lawyer of the wife, who had filed maintenance case against her husband who is an engineer working in a government department, had applied under the Right to Information Act seeking details of salary received by him. The state information commission had held that such information sought can be disclosed. The husband had challenged this order before the Nagpur bench of the Bombay High Court.

One thought on “Husband’s salary details through RTI can’t be disclosed : Bombay HC”

  1. Salary details of all the employees are required to be disclosed proactivily by the public authority under section 4(1)(b) of the RTI ACT 2005.

    On what grounds HC has denied the information?
