Should DTC put the minutes of meetings of the board on its website?
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) seeking information about updating of computer data including all the notices, circulars, office orders and minutes of meeting etc. of DTC Board. He also sought information about the rules and regulations of the DTC amended and updated from time to time. The Public Information Officer (PIO) stated that minutes of meeting of the DTC Board were not available on the website but offered the applicant that the details of board resolution / item and meeting date can be supplied to him as per his desire.
During the hearing before the Central Information Commission (CIC), the appellant reiterated his request that in relation with the information sought by him in his RTI application, particularly the minutes of the meeting of DTC Board, should be uploaded on the website of the DTC.
View of CIC
The Commission directed the PIO to place the minutes of meetings of DTC board along with other information on the website of the DTC. The CIC further directed that DTC should also put in place a system that ensures that the said information is routinely updated on the website once every three months.
