Disclosure of construction plan of Air force Buildings under RTI
The appellant sought information about the buildings to be constructed on a plot of land at district Agra. The construction was being done for the Air force and the Public Information Officer (PIO) refused to disclose the information under section 8(1) (a) of the RTI Act. The First Appellate Authority (FAA) also upheld the PIO decision.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) dismissed the appeal holding that the construction of Air Force buildings has a bearing on the national security and the details cannot be disclosed.
