An appeal under subsection 3 of section 19 of the right to information act 2005 against central public information officer, department of income tax who did not provide the information to the appellant on the flimsy ground while the matter concerns the deep-rooted corruption in the working of the public authority department of income tax.


Chief Information Commissioner of India

The Central Information Commission,

Baba Gangnath Marg, Munirka,

New Delhi - 110 067

Appellant –Yogi M. P. Singh, Mohalla-Surekapuram, Shri Laxmi Narayan Baikunth Mahadev Mandir, Riva Road, District-Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh, Pin code -231001, Mobile number-7379105911


1-Central Public Information Officer-Sonu Agrawal, Income Tax Officer CRU, Office of DGIT investigation New Delhi.

Phone: 011-23221441


2-First Appellate Authority- AASHWITA LAL

Phone: 23593293


Prayer-Instead of pursuing the path of negative approach of not providing information, Central Public Information Officer must provide the information-to-information seeker/appellant in the matter concerning deep rooted corruption, lawlessness and anarchy lowering the dignity of the Department of income tax due to lack of transparency and accountability in the working.

Short submissions of the Appellant are as follows.

1-    It is submitted before the Honourable Sir that Section 24 of RTI Act 2005 "Act not to apply in certain organizations”.

(1) Nothing contained in this Act shall apply to the intelligence and security organisations specified in the Second Schedule, being organisations established by the Central Government or any information furnished by such organisations to that Government:

Provided that the information pertaining to the allegations of corruption and human rights violations shall not be excluded under this sub-section:

Think about the gravity of situation department of income tax is concealing its corruption by taking the recourse of this provision of the right to information act and working against the spirit of the right to information act 2005 which is a mockery of the law.

2-CPIO Should provide the reasons for not mentioning the registration number of the RTI applications as a right to reason is an indispensable part of the sound administrative system.

Reply of CPIO- Kindly refer to your online RTI application-Registration Number DGIND/R/T/23/00074, Name Yogi M P Singh, Received Date 07/11/2023

In this regard it is informed that registration number is allotted only to online RTI applications. Offline RTI applications are not allotted with any registration number. You had filed an offline RTI application therefore registration number was not mentioned in order under section 7 dated 20th October 2023 passed by CPIO.

Submission of the appellant- It must be noted that the appellant submitted an online RTI application in the matter. It may be concerning-public authority transferred the RTI application offline but the original registration number of the RTI application had to be mentioned in entire communications concerning my RTI application. For the convenience of the first appellate authority the appellant has attached the specific communication in which the original registration number of the online application was not mentioned to confuse the appellant. Under this point the central public information officer provided misleading information unrelated with the sought information of the appellant. Earlier and current acts of the public information officer are promoting corruption in the Department of income tax. Registration number of the RTI application is the identity of the application if it is not mentioned by the public authority which means it is keeping the information seeker in dark.

3- It is submitted before the honourable sir that the appellant sought Information under point 2,3 and 4 which was not entertained by the central public information officer. Consequently, the central public information officer provided incomplete misleading information so action must be taken against him under disciplinary proceedings of the department.

The appellant is seeking information concerning with the mismanagement and irregularities and rampant corruption in the department of income tax and public information officer is not providing information to conceal the corruption of the department so central public information officer must be directed to provide the information to the information seeker as the matter concerns with the deep-rooted corruption in the Department of income tax.

This is a humble request of the appellant to you Hon’ble Sir that how can it be justified to withhold public services arbitrarily and promote anarchy, lawlessness, and chaos in an arbitrary manner by making the mockery of law of land? This is the need of the hour to take harsh steps against the wrongdoers in order to win the confidence of citizenry and strengthen the democratic values for healthy and prosperous democracy. For this, your applicant shall ever pray to you, Hon’ble Sir.


Yours sincerely

Date-13/01/2024              Yogi M. P. Singh, Mobile number-7379105911, Mohalla- Surekapuram, Riva Road, District-Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh, Pin code-231001.
