Delhi High court order Audit Report for Rajiv Gandhi Foundation trust

Rajiv Gandhi Foundation (RGF) was on Wednesday ordered to submit its annual audited accounts while the Delhi High Court considers whether the organisation comes under the RTI Act. "File the annual audited accounts right from its inception till the year 2010-2011 along with a tabular statement indicating year-wise income," Justice Shakdher, said in the order. The direction came after Delhi-based lawyer Shanmuga Patro challenged the Chief Information Commissioner's (CIC) order saying RGF is not a public authority and doesn't come under the RTI. In 2009, the RGF had denied information to him, claiming that the foundation was not a public authority - a decision that was confirmed by the CIC.
