  • RTI Experts

    Yes.

    Various CIC orders and court judgments have held that certain aspects of salary of a government employee can be disclosed under the RTI Act. However, there are certain information which constitutes third party information and the same is exempt from disclosure unless consent is obtained from the concerned third party.

    There is the aspect of voluntary disclosure of Salary details Under Sec 4 (1) (b)(X) of the RTI Act under which such information can be obtained. Third party information can be also be disclosed under special circumstances whereby larger public interest is shown which warrants disclosure of such information.
