Shri Virajoo Kumar vs Telecom Regulatory Authority of India

Central Information Commission

25/10/2010

File No.CIC/DS/C/2010/000332

About/from the judgment:

We are of the opinion that the appellant is legally entitled to seek the information from TRAI u/s 2 (f) of the RTI Act and TRAI is mandated to call for such information from the service provider (Reliance Company in this case) as mentioned hereinabove and furnish the same to the appellant.

 

Before parting with this matter, we would, however, like to observe that collection, collation and transmission of information by the public authority, or, for that matter, by a private entity, is a costly exercise and puts strain on their resources. The information seeker must seek only that information which he genuinely needs or which is of any use to him. Wanton demand for information is against the spirit of the RTI Act.
