Criminal background



  • Can a criminal background of a person be checked under RTI? What information can be got with regard to this under RTI?


  • RTI Experts

    Depends

    You could address the RTI application to the crime records bureau as it is a public authority and the RTI Act is applicable to it.

    However, this would depend on the method under which the particular state's authority maintains its records.

    Under section 2(f), you could obtain certified copies of the relevant documents and records regarding details of any pending cases, the nature of such cases, details of punishment or acquittal, if any and other relevant details.
