We direct the CPIO to furnish the information pertaining to the net taxable income of Shri Munna Lal Saini, the father-in-law of the Appellant,


In many situations where fictitious dowry claims are made on hapless husbands, and where it is clear that the wealth so mentioned as dowry was NEVER subject to tax, filing a tax evasion petition becomes a duty rather than just a strategy

Then questions as to ... ".... Do I have the Father in Law's PAN #?...", "...will the Information officer or the Assessment officer at the IT office give me information ...." etc come up

In a landmark judgement the Central Information commission ordered "...18. We direct the CPIO to furnish the information pertaining to the net taxable income of Shri Munna Lal Saini, the father-in-law of the Appellant, for the period of year 2000 till 15.09.2009 (i.e. the date of the Appellant’s RTI Application) to the Appellant within 10 days....."

A copy of the judgement is enclosed here for easy reference

This is a must read for all those fighting for justice
