G Ravi Prasad
I would like to obtain certain information / records from the "REGISTRARS & SHARE TRANSFER AGENTS", is the R & ST Agents will come under purview of RTI Act or not. Please confirm.
The Registrar and Share Transfer Agents re the trusts or institutions that register and maintain detailed records of the transactions of investors for the convenience of mutual fund houses and as such are outside the purview of the RTI Act.
However, the rules and regulations governing the functioning of Registrar and Share Transfer Agents are formulated by the Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) which is a public authority and the RTI Act is applicable to it. Under section 2(f), you could obtain certified copies of the relevant documents and records from SEBI.
