Question: Can the sports certificate of a person be disclosed  to another person under the RTI Act?

Asked from: Odisha

The disclosure of a sports certificate of a person would depend on whether it falls within the definition of “information” under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, 2005.

If the certificate is held by a public authority or falls under the definition of “public record,” then it may be subject to disclosure under the RTI Act. However, if the certificate is held by a private entity or is not considered a public record, it may not be subject to disclosure under the Act.

It is important to note that there are some exemptions under the RTI Act that may prevent the disclosure of certain information. For example, if the disclosure of the sports certificate would involve the invasion of someone’s privacy or would harm someone’s competitive position, then it may be exempt from disclosure under Section 8 of the Act.

Ultimately, the determination of whether a sports certificate is subject to disclosure under the RTI Act would depend on the specific circumstances of the case. If the certificate holder is a public servant or engaged in public service especially on the sports quota, then in the larger public interest his sport’s certificate may be disclosed under the RTI Act.
