    Yes.

    The municipal authority which is concerned with giving approvals for cinstruction of telecom towers is a public authority and the RTI Act is applicable to it.

    Under section 2(f), you could obtain the relevant documents and records relating to the approvals, certificates issued, details of inspections carried out along with the entire set of documents relating to the type and dimensions of the tower

    The details are seldom available as they are not updated nor maintained as required under egovernance norms. recently i wanted to know the rental and maintainence charges being paid separately by each of the cellular service providers of which Vodaphone, Airtel , Tata teleservices have installed anumber of towers on the terrace of the 17 storied Kailash Building situated at 35/1, Jawharlal Nehru road, kolkata-700071.the details of the beneficiaries where these amounts are paid by these companies by cheque or electronic transfer. It is surprising that such a simple/mundane information is kept pending. he RTI Online seems to address the problem and I have sent a request Online. The Speed and realisation of the information is awaited.

    It is of vital importance for the Income Tax and other statutory departments viz..Service Tax department to know the details as huge sums of money are paid to beneficiaries who then escape notice of the tax authorities. If people who benefit surreptitiously and then escape notice of authorities are causing heavy losses to the Public Exchequer,as after receiving the benefits they close the bank accounts and start under a new name
