The Delhi High Court on the 21st of November, delivered a comprehensive judgment holding that the Right To Information Act (RTI) would not override the Supreme Court Rules (SC Rules) when it comes to dissemination of information.

The Supreme Court of India, through its Registrar, had challenged an order of the Central Information Commission (CIC), which had directed the apex court to answer the queries of litigant RS Misra as to why his SLP was dismissed.

Appearing for the petitioner, Senior Advocate Siddhartha Luthra submitted that the CIC, in a number of previous decisions had repeatedly held that access to documents filed on the judicial side can only be obtained through the mechanism of SC Rules and that the provisions of the RTI Act cannot override them.
