RTI for mobile Freedom 251



  • Recently the new Mobile phone has declared the offer to give mobile handset in just Rs.251/- . The company claim the waiting period of 4 Months and they seem to have collected 25 crores as of now from indian population.

    I wish to know whether the company has been approved by govt of India or not.

    Secondly, what action the govt would take incase the company tomorrow closes down their operation and the customers loses their money?


  • RTI Experts

    Depends.

    This particular company is a private company and therefore the RTI Act is not applicable to it.

    However, you could obtain the documents and records of this particular company under section 2(f) of RTI Act by filing a RTI application with the Registrar of Companies (ROC) which is a government body maintaining details and documents of companies registered with it.

    The second part of your query is based on contingency and speculation and therefore not covered under the RTI Act.
