CIC rules EVMs are 'information' under RTI Act

Sunday, February 24, 2019, 6:56 PM

This implies Election-Commission has to respond to an-RTI-application seeking the EVM either by providing it or refusing it under exemption clauses in Act. But that also can be contested before CIC, highest-adjudicating-authority in RTI matters.
