Relevance to the RTI Act

Section 68 of the RTI Act deals with forms of access to information under that the RTI Act. Section 68(4)(c) of the RTI Act replicates section 30(3)(c) of the repealed FOI Act with no substantive changes.

Relevantly, schedule 6 of the RTI Act defines 'reviewable decision' to include a decision giving access to a document in a form different from the form applied for by the applicant, unless access in the form applied for would involve an infringement of the copyright of a person other than the State.
