A lawyer sought information under the Right to Information (RTI) in the Municipal Corporation. The Corporation has replied that the information can not be provided because the lawyer is not an Indian citizen.
The corporation’s copy of this reply also became fiercely viral on social media. People have also took a lot of stress on this issue.
Advocate Yugal Kishore Dasohra, the resident of Udaipur, sought information regarding two plots located at Hiranmagri.
In response, the Municipal Corporation replied that under the provision of the Right to Information Act, the right to receive information is only and only for the Indian citizen.
The Assistant Public Information Officer of the corporation further wrote that the applicant is the advocate himself and the institution of the advocate does not fall within the definition of the word citizen. In such a situation, information can not be provided.
The officer who gave this reply is facing Inquiry now.
