Relevance to the RTI Act

Schedule 3, section 10(2) of the RTI Act retains section 42(2)(a) of the FOI Act with no substantive alterations. Notably, section 42(2)(b) of the FOI Act is not retained in the RTI Act. This is because schedule 3 of the RTI Act sets out the types of information which the Parliament has considered to be ‘exempt information’ because its disclosure would, on balance, be contrary to public interest.
