Dear Mr. Dey,In response to my RTI application dated 10
August 2010
, Ireceived a response from the Bar Council of India dated 21
September 2010
. This is an appeal, under s.19 of the RTI Act 2005, arising out of the response of the Bar Council of India.I request you to reconsider the following issues:1. In response to query no.10 in my original RTI application dated 10
August 2010, where I had sought all contracts/ memorandums of understanding and/ oragreements between the Bar Council and Rainmaker, the Bar Council of India hasclaimed an exemption under s.8(1)(e) of the RTI Act 2005 as informationavailable in a fiduciary relationship.Apart from requesting you to reconsider the Bar Council of India’s position that this is information available in a fiduciary relationship, I would also request youto provide this information in the ‘larger public interest’ as provided in s.8(1)(e)of the RTI Act 2005. Since this information relates to the spending of publicmoney, I would request you to provide this information even if the Bar Council of India believes it to be information available in a fiduciary relationship.2. In response to query no.11 in my original RTI application, where informationwas sought on the amounts already paid and also on amounts proposed to bepaid by the Bar Council of India to Rainmaker, the Bar Council of India has onlystated that no money has been paid to Rainmaker. As is evident, the informationsought on amounts to be paid in the future to Rainmaker has not been provided. Irequest you to provide information on the amounts that the Bar Council of Indiawill pay Rainmaker in the future.Since I did not receive the information from the Bar Council of India, requestedin my original RTI application dated 10
