Form 10 details must be disclosed under RTI Act

Form 10 details must be disclosed under RTI Act

NEW DELHI: The details of Form 10 submitted by an office to the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation should be disclosed under the RTI Act, the Central Information Commission has held.

The Commission directed the EPFO to disclose Form 10 details — including information on workers who have resigned — submitted by a newspaper group, which were demanded by an RTI applicant.

The EPFO refused, saying the records were held in "fiduciary capacity" — exempt from disclosure under the RTI Act — by the Regional PF Commissioner. — PTI
