G. ROHINI, CHIEF JUSTICE:
1. The petitioner in W.P.(C) No.4547/2012 preferred this appeal
aggrieved by the order of the learned Single Judge dated 08.10.2013 in
W.P.(C) No.4547/2012 thereby deferring the hearing in the petition as
well as CM No.9482/2012 till the disposal of the Transfer Petitions
pending before the Supreme Court.
2. We have heard the learned counsel for both the parties.
3. A perusal of the material available on record shows that the
appellant/writ petitioner made an application under the Right to
Information Act, 2005 (for short ‘the Act’) seeking certain information
in the form of certified copies from Reserve Bank of India (for short
‘RBI’) regarding imposition of penalties on 19 Commercial Banks for
non-compliance of instructions on derivatives as reflected from the
RBI’s Press Release dated 26.04.2011. The CPIO of RBI rejected the
petitioner’s application on the ground that it is an exempted information
under Section 8(1)(e) of the RTI Act. The First Appellate Authority
dismissed the said appeal and thereupon, the appellant/writ petitioner
preferred a Second Appeal before CIC.
