Aarogya Setu: RTI body pulls up govt over 'denial of information'

Oct 28, 2020 18:12 IST

The Central Information Commission has issued notice to the government for 'evasive answers' on who created the Aarogya Setu app. Aarogya Setu's website says it was developed by the National Informatics Centre and the Information Technology ministry, but they both have denied knowledge of who created the app while responding to a Right to Information query. ‘Denial of information by authorities cannot be accepted,’ the top RTI body said in the notice. The information commission also questioned why the government should not face action for 'prima facie obstruction of information' and giving an 'evasive reply' to RTI application.
