Q.

Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been exempted from giving information under Right to Information Act. The decision was taken by the Cabinet on Thursday following repeated requests by the agency on the grounds that it probed sensitive cases, and in doing so, it "becomes difficult for it to share information and also in accessing the information'.- Is this right ?

I think this is right . The logic given by the agency seems justified as sensitive information by CBI may not be shared with general public under RTI act .

I think it is a good move in the interest of both internal and external security of the Nation.Particularly when our neighbouring coutries are trying to destabilise our internal security by creating communal disturbances and making the issues more sensitive.This may also help those who want to wage anti-india campaign at international level.The decision may need to be ratified in parliment since it calls for the amendment of the
R T I Act.
