The above Act is a Central Legislation. The main object and purpose of the Act is to provide right to all the citizens to secure access to information under the control of public authority in order to promote openness, transparency and accountability.

  1. The public Authority under the Act means any authority or body or institution of self- government established or constituted under the Constitution of India, any enactment made by Parliament and by notification issued or order made by Central/State Government. Accordingly Allahabad UP Gramin Bank with the approval of the Bank’s Board on 27.04.2010 has constituted the requirement set up under RTI Act 2005.
  1.  1. A citizen who desired to obtain any information under the Act is not required to give    any reason for requesting the information or any other personal details except those that may be necessary for contacting him. He shall make a request in writing along with fee to Central Public Information Officer (CPIO).

 2. Where such request can not be made in writing, CPIO shall render all reasonable assistance to the person making the request orally to reduce the same in writing.
 3. The CPIO is the authority for providing information to the person requesting the same under the Act.

  1. Where the application is made to a Public Authority requesting for information:
  2. Which is  held by another Public Authority.

Or

  1. The subject matter of which is more closely connected with the functions of another Public Authority, to which such application is made, shall transfer the application or such part of it as may be appropriate to that Public Authority and inform the applicant immediately about such transfer but in no case not later than five days from the date of receipt of the application, it is clarified that our Bank as a whole is one Public Authority.
  1. 1. CPIO is required to provide the information on payment of fee or reject the request for any reasons specified in the Act within 30 days of the receipt of the request.

  3. Information which has been expressly forbidden to be published by any court of law or tribunal or the discloser of which may constitute contempt of court.
  4. Information, the disclosure of which would  cause a breach of privilege of Parliament or state Legislature.

  11. Information which relates to personal information the disclosure of which has no relationship to any public activity or interest, or which would cause unwarranted invasion of the privacy of the individual unless the CPIO or the appellate authority, as the case may be, is satisfied that the larger public interest justified the disclosure of such information.
