Modi's passport application cannot be disclosed: CIC

NEW DELHI: Documents submitted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with the application for getting a passport and its renewal, cannot be disclosed as these are “personal information”, the CIC has held.

The case relates to an RTI application filed by G M Chauhan, a member of the Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee, seeking copies of the material submitted by Modi for obtaining his first passport and subsequent renewal or fresh application for obtaining a diplomatic passport.

The passport office had earlier refused to share the documents, saying it is “personal information” which cannot be provided under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) R K Mathur has said in his order that Chauhan could not substantiate the larger public interest for the disclosure of “personal information”. (AGENCIES)
