    The authority concerned with the forest land and forest reservation policy is a public authority and the RTI Act is applicable to it.

    You could obtain information relating to the overall policy of the department after the passing of the judgment, the steps involved for release of land, the criteria to be fulfilled and other relevant details regarding release of land. Under section 2 (f) of the RTI Act, you could obtain certified copies of the relevant documents and records. You could obtain copies of orders/notifications issued by the authority in this regard along with copies of communications/correspondence exchanged between departments/officials, copies of any report prepared or survey conducted along with policy related documents and other related details.
