CRPF is exempt from providing information under section 24
Ref: Can a “token” penalty be imposed on the PIO under the RTI Act?
Comment: I am serving in CRPF. As per Chapter 2, Para 24(1) Nothing contained in this Act shall apply to the intelligence and security organisations specified in the Second Schedule, being organisations established by the Central Government or any information furnished by such organisations to that Government: Provided that the information pertaining to the allegations of corruption and human rights violations shall not be excluded under this sub-section: CRPF is exempted from providing information except cases wherein corruption/ violation of human rights are involved. But the PIOs of CRPF always misuses this clause and not providing even general information giving reference of this clause. My plea is that if they will not provide general information required by applicants under RTI, than how it is possible to check whether there is any misappropriation of money/ fraud involved in a particular case or otherwise?
