Muthoot Finance was originally incorporated as a private limited company on March 14, 1997 with the name “The Muthoot Finance Private Limited” under the Companies Act. Subsequently, by fresh certificate of incorporation dated May 16, 2007, its name was changed to “Muthoot Finance Private Limited”.

You are asking question from a Private body which does not come under the ambit of RTI hence they are not bound to reply.

The Right to Information Act 2005 (RTI ACT) was enacted to obtain information from the Public Authority which is defined under Section 2 (h) of the Act. The provisions of the Act are only related with the information to be obtained from public authorities. The Act is not applicable on private companies. However the information of the private company can be obtained from its regulator if so.Relevant provisions in the Act in support of the same are as follows:-

  1. Preamble of the Act reads as under :-
    “An act to provide for setting out the practical regime of right to information for citizens to secure access to information under the control of public authorities, in order to promote transparency and accountability in the working of every Public Authority, the Constitution of the Central Information Commission and State Information Commissions and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. Whereas …”

2 . Definition of Information Section 2 (f) of the Act reads as under :-
“Information” means any material in any form, including records, documents, memos, e-mails, opinions, advices, press releases, circulars, orders, logbooks, contracts, reports, papers, samples, models, data material held in any electronic form and information relating to any private body which can be accessed by a public authority under any other law for the time being in force.
Pl. comment on the above lines. RBI, being a regulatory authority is liable to furnish the information under RTI Act.
