In July last year, the HC had stayed the state information commission’s order to divulge information regarding the purchase of land by Vadra at Chharabra near Shimla.

The court, in its notice, had directed her to file a reply to the application moved by one of the respondents, saying that he had also sought information under the Right to Information (RTI) Act on the file noting of house allotment to Sonia Gandhi, AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra in New Delhi.

The respondent contended that while the authorities in Delhi divulged the information about the house allotment to them under the RTI Act, why the Shimla administration was not providing the same.
