Inquiry proceedings against CBI officials may get exempted from the scope of the Right to Information Act (RTI), if the government’s suggestions on the working of a proposed accountability commission get through.

“Notwithstanding anything contained in RTI or any other law for the time being in force, all records of the proceedings related to a complaint and the inquiry shall not be disclosed by any person in any proceeding except as directed by the Commission,” said an affidavit submitted by the government in the SC. The centre, which was directed by the SC to come up with steps to free CBI from external influences, has proposed an accountability commission to probe complaints against CBI officials.
