Third Party Information under Right to Information Act, 2005

Third Party Information under Right to Information Act, 2005

Section 11 of the RTI Act, 2005 deals with the third party information.

Definition of “third party”

According to Section 2(n) of the Right to Information Act, 2005, “third party” means a person other than the citizen making a request for information and includes a public authority.

Third party information

Where a Central Public Information Officer or a State Public Information Officer, as the case may be, intends to dis­close any information or record, or part thereof on a request made under this Act –

(i) which relates to or has been supplied by a third party and

(ii) has been treated as confidential by that third party,

The Central Public Information Officer or State Public Information Officer, as the case may be, shall, –

(i) within five days from the receipt of the request, give a written notice to such third party of the request and

(ii) of the fact that the Central Public Information Officer or State Public Information Officer, as the case may be, intends to disclose the information or record, or part thereof, and

(iii) invite the third party to make a submission in writing or orally, regarding whether the informa­tion should be disclosed, and

(iv) such submission of the third party shall be kept in view while taking a decision about disclosure of information.

However, in the case of trade or commercial secrets protected by law, disclosure may be allowed if the public inter­est in disclosure outweighs in importance any possible harm or injury to the interests of such third party.

Representation by the third party

Section 11(2) states that where a notice is served by the Central Public Information Officer or State Public Information Officer, as the case may be, under sub-section (1) to a third party in respect of any informa­tion or record or part thereof, the third party shall, within ten days from the date of receipt of such notice, be given the oppor­tunity to make representation against the proposed disclosure.

Section 11(3) provides that the Central Public Information Officer or State Public Information Officer, as the case may be, shall, within forty days after receipt of the request under section 6 of the Act, if the third party has been given an opportunity to make representation under sub-section (2), make a decision –

(a) as to whether or not to disclose the information or record or part thereof and

(b) give in writing the notice of his decision to the third party.

A notice given under sub-section (3) shall include a state­ment that the third party to whom the notice is given is entitled to prefer an appeal under section 19 of the RTI Act, 2005 against the decision.
