No public interest overriding right to privacy of donors and donees of electoral bonds: CIC rejects RTI application


Durve’s plea was rejected by the Central Public Information Officer (CPIO) of the State Bank of India, Mumbai on the ground that the same is exempted under Section 8(1)(e) and (j).

He then challenged the same before the First Appellate Authority which held that the information relating to electoral bonds issued to various political parties sought by Durve was held by the bank in fiduciary capacity.

It, therefore, turned down the appeal prompting Durve to approach the CIC by way of second appeal.
