Seeking details of incoming calls from BSNL under RTI Act
In his RTI application, the appellant sought information regarding the details of incoming calls received on his BSNL landline number. The Public Information Officer (PIO) informed that it is not possible to furnish the detail of incoming calls unless it was requested earlier. The appellant can avail the CLI Machine on his telephone and check incoming calls.
The PIO stated that the appellant has requested for a print out of an incoming call on his telephone number, due to technical reasons it was not possible to access the said information. This has already been advised to the appellant. The PIO added that he will once again try to retrieve the information and if accessible will provide the same to the appellant.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) directed the PIO to retrieve the information and furnish the same to the appellant. If in case it is technically not feasible to access the information, a declaration to the effect should be furnished to appellant.
