‘If it is held otherwise, it would negate and lead to derecognising the fundamental right to information as granted under the RTI Act, which is unacceptable.’ Now one can apply for Birth and Death certificates and other documents through RTI. The Punjab and Haryana High court recently allowed a plea of a man who had applied death certificate of his mother through RTI. Justice Augustine George Masih held that in case of an application preferred under the Right to Information Act where alternative procedure and conditions are prescribed under any other statute/law, the said application cannot be rejected and/or information denied on this ground.
