  1. CASE LAW

 

  • CENTRAL INFORMATION COMMISSION Complaint No.:-CIC/BS/C/2016/000176-BJ Ms. Tulika Saxena vs Commissioner of Income Tax, O/o. Asstt.  Dated 26.04.2017 in which the Complainant vide her RTI application sought information regarding income and income tax details of her husband Mr. Gaurav Saxena for FY 2009-2010 to 2014-2015 etc.

 

Decision

 

Keeping in view the facts of the case and the information available on record,

it is evident that no reply had been furnished to the Complainant in

accordance with the provisions of the RTI Act, 2005 which is a grave violation

of the provisions of the Act. The Commission, instructs the CPIO to show cause why action should not be taken under the provisions of the Act for this misconduct and negligence. The Commission therefore, directs the respondent to:

 

1- provide a suitable response to the Complainant within a period of 10 days in accordance with the provisions of the RTI Act, 2005;

 

  • Central Information Commission File No:CIC/RM/A/2012/000038/LS Ms Juhi Jadli vs Income-tax Department, Noida dated 03.06.2013 in which point number 2 By RTI application dated 07.09.2011, the appellant had sought thefollowing information about her husband Shri Shobhit Garg :

(i) Source of income declared by him;

(ii) Details of deductions, such as housing loans, LIC etc., claimed by him;

(iii) Certified copies of the ITRs filed by him for the years 2006-07 to 2010-11

 

Decision

 

It appears to me that there is estrangement between the husband and

the wife. The wives generally try to collect this information for canvassing

their cases in the Family Courts for grant of maintenance. A wife can not

be treated as third party in the strict sense of the term, so long as the

marriage subsists. That, after divorce, the legal position changes. I

am told that           marriage still subsists between the appellant and Shri

Shobhit Garg. Hence, it will not be correct to deny information on the

ground that the appellant is a third party. In the given facts, I order that

gross income and net taxable income declared by Shri Shobhit Garg in the

last ITR filed by him, may be disclosed to the appellant. No other

information is required to be disclosed

 

The below stated are judgements along with this appeal. These latest judgements emphasizes on the words like “Public interest”, “third party”, “8(1)(e) or 8(1)(j)” and why a CPIO can provide information to spouse.

  1. CIC Complaint No.: CIC/EPFOG/A/2018/627668 (Kapil Agarwal v PIO, EPFO, Haryana) 12-Sep-18
  2. CIC Complaint No.: CIC/EPFOG/A/2018/611853 (Pratinav Jain v PIO, EPFO, Bangalore) 29-May-18
  3. Some additional latest CIC judgements are aslo listed as below.

As per the below 2017, 2018 LATEST Judgements, CIC has mentioned time and again that the spouse is not third party when marriage subsists. Hence, requested information should not be denied and needs to be provided within stipulated time to secure justice. The 2017, 2018 LATEST CIC Judgements can be referred in the below Cases.
