BMRCL told to furnish information



Former Mayor P R Ramesh had sought information from the BMRCL regarding the detailed project report, agreement, escalation of prices, mode of payment and utilisation certificate and the tender document. In reply, the BMRCL considered Ramesh as ‘Third party’ and decided not to give information pertaining to ‘commercial confidentiality’ under section 8(1)D of the Act.

After getting a negative response, Ramesh appealed to the KIC against the BMRCL’s decision and sought the Commission’s intervention in getting the desired information. Hearing the case, the Chief Information Commission K K Mishra rejected BMRCL’s argument that the information sought by Ramesh comes under commercial confidentiality. He also directed the BMRCL to give information by Nov 16.
