Can copies of vouchers be provided under RTI?
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) seeking information regarding the engagement of permanent or temporary sweepers in offices of the CBI. The Public Information Officer (PIO) provided some.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) observed that the appellant wanted to know if sweepers had been engaged during a certain period on a temporary basis in the place of regular employees and if so the payment made to them and the copies of the vouchers to show the payment. The CIC directed the PIO to send to the appellant the photocopies of all available records including vouchers showing the engagement of sweepers on a casual/temporary basis in place of regular employees from time to time.
