GCA comes under RTI Act, rules GSCIC

PANAJI: The Goa State Chief Information Commissioner (GSCIC) has ruled that the Goa Cricket Association (GCA) does come under the ambit of the Right to Information Act and has asked the GCA to furnish information sought by social activist Aires Rodrigues within 30 days.

Rodrigues had complained to the GSCIS against the GCA for its refusal to furnish information sought under the RTI Act after the cricketing body refused to furnish him information claiming that it did not come under the purview of the RTI Act as it had not received any financial or other assistance from the Goa government or the Sports Authority of Goa (SAG).

However, Rodrigues submitted documentary proof to the effect that the Goa government had granted a 99-year lease to GCA of land admeasuring 1,30,328 sq m at Tivim for the construction of a cricket stadium at a nominal rent of Rs 50,000 per year.

He also submitted evidence that SAG had granted GCA financial assistance of Rs 50 lakh in 2000.
