I have read the newpapers today shouting at the top of their voice that it is a landmark judgment. However, nobody has raised a point why it took the office of the Chief Justice of India (CJI) more than 14 years to declare that it is covered under RTI ACT? It is a criminal negligence or rather a deliberate act of commission to blatantly deny transparency at the highest level of judiciary. Should those responsible for it not be hauled?
While going through the site, I came across a couple of articles on similar issues which are listed below.
