BCCI may come under RTI Act

The Central Information Commission may reconsider its previous decision of exempting the Indian cricket board from the ambit of the RTI Act as it indicated that a larger bench may be constituted to decide on the “complex” issue of bringing BCCI under the transparency law.

The Central Information Commission may reconsider its previous decision of exempting the Indian cricket board from the ambit of the RTI Act as it indicated that a larger bench may be constituted to decide on the “complex” issue of bringing BCCI under the transparency law.

The CIC in a previous order has declared that the BCCI is not a public authority covered under the RTI Act. However, Information Commissioner ML Sharma during a hearing on Tuesday said since it is a “complex” matter, if need arises, a larger bench may be considered for a decision.

The case relates to RTI applications seeking details of working of the BCCI. In its reply, the cricket body said it does not come under RTI Act as it is not financed by the govt.
