The Supreme Court RTI portal has been prepared. Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud told that the RTI portal of the Supreme Court is fully ready. Through this portal, people will be able to easily get information related to the Supreme Court.
Such information will be received from the Supreme Court
Any common citizen can now apply online to get information from the Supreme Court under the Right to Information Act. To submit the online application, you have to visit the portal registry.sci.gov.in/rti_app. People get information from many institutions under the Right to Information. The method of getting information from the Supreme Court is also almost the same. To get the information of the Supreme Court, first the applicant has to create his login ID in it. After this, the information being sought will have to be filled in the form. Lastly, a fee of Rs 10 has to be paid online.
The Supreme Court is also a public office under the Right to Information Act, 2005
Explain that the Supreme Court of the country is also a public office under the Right to Information Act, 2005. Citizens can ask for information related to its functioning under the law. In a historic decision on 13 November 2019, the office of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court has also been declared a ‘public office’. In such a situation, citizens will now be able to get answers to questions related to the Supreme Court as well as the Chief Justice.
However, the working information of the judges of the Supreme Court will not be made public, as it may affect many pending cases. From the point of view of security, many information related to the judges of the Supreme Court also do not come under this right. In such a situation, people have to take care of many things before asking for information.
