Information about number of foreign visitors to India only with IB
An applicant wanted to know about the number of visitors from US, UK and other Countries from the Ministry of External Affairs. The application was transferred to the Intelligence Bureau (IB) through the Ministry of Home Affairs who claimed that it is beyond the purview of the RTI Act. The CIC was amused to note that the information about the number of visitors from different countries is only available with an organization which is the Intelligence Bureau of India. Normal logic would dictate that such information should be available in public domain.
