Information regarding the Death claim details of third party’s policy with LIC
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the LIC of India seeking Death claim details in respect of third party’s policy. The Public Information Officer (PIO) denied to disclose the information under section 8 (1)(j) of the RTI Act.
During the hearing before the Central Information Commission (CIC), the respondents submitted that policy number has not been given by the appellant so that action under section 11 of the RTI Act could be initiated by the PIO.
View of CIC
The Commission upheld the PIO’s order holding that no larger public interest has been established by the appellant for the disclosure of the third party information.
