Donations made by the President come under the Right to Information

Search News

In a significant case the Delhi high Court has held that under the Right to Information Act, every citizen is entitled to know the donations given by the President of India, as these are made out of public funds. The judgment says that every citizen is entitled to know as to how the money, which is collected by the State from him by exaction, has been utilized. Merely because the person making the donations happens to be the President of India, is no ground to withhold the said information. The Honbl President isn't immune from the application of the Act. Such acts of generosity and magnanimity done by the President should be placed in the public domain as they would enhance the stature of the office of the President of India. In that sense, the disclosure of the information would be in the public interest as well.
