MR No. 65 of 2008

ORDER

The judgment in this case was reserved vide my order dated 24.03.09.

2. The question falling for decision in this Miscellaneous Reference is whether the “SMS Karamjot” college for women, Miani, Hoshiarpur is a “public authority” within a meaning of Section 2 (h) RTI Act 2005 attracting the applicability of the RTI Act 2005.
3. The definition of public authority as per Section 2(h) is as under:-
“ 2(h) Public Authority means any authority or body or institution of self- government established or constituted-
(a) by or under the Constitution;
(b) by any other law made by Parliament;
(c) by any other law made by State Legislature;
(d) by notification issued or order made by the appropriate Government, and includes any-
(i) body owned, controlled or substantially financed;
(ii) non-Government Organisation substantially financed, directly or indirectly by funds provided by the appropriate Government.”

4. The point to be seen is whether the Respondent college is a body established under any statute or is owned, controlled or substantially financed directly or indirectly by funds provided by the appropriate Government. In the affidavit dated 27.11.08 filed by Sh. Khazan Singh, the Director of the

5. , it is stated that the college in question is a

private college which does not receive any grant in aid from the Punjab Government. The salaries of the Principal, Lecturers, Class IV employees as well as the Library restorer (that is the entire staff) is paid by the college from its own funds. The details of financial assistance received by the college and the purpose thereof is as under:-
(i) During the year 2003-04 UCG released a grant of Rs. 9.0 lacs to the college for the purchase of computers and developing the infrastructure.
(ii) Another sum of Rs. 52,020/- was released by the UCG for purchasing books, journals and equipments etc.
(iii) In the year 2004-05, UCG released a grant of Rs. 2.0 lacs for career orientation programme and Rs. 1,66,464/- for purchase of books , journals and equipments.
(iv) In the year 2005-06, a Sum of Rs. 15.00 lacs was released by the Punjab Government to the college which was utilized for constructing an auditorium.
(v) In April 2006, UGC paid Rs. 1,73,400/- to the college for construction of library building .
(vi) On June 03, 2006 , UGC paid a sum of Rs. 2.0 lacs to the college for career orientation programme.
(vii) In February 2008, a sum Rs. 41,616/- was paid to the college by the UGC for purchasing books and equipments.

5. In reply to this affidavit, the Applicant has challenged the locus standi of Sh. Khazan Singh to file the affidavit inasmuch as there is no post of Director Collector in the college which he claims to hold. It is further submitted that the Respondent college is affiliated to Panjab University and as per rules framed by the University , it is only the Principal who could file the affidavit. On merits it is submitted that the college has been established under Section 27 of the Punjab University Act and is fully controlled and governed by the rules & regulations made thereunder by the Panjab university syndicate. It is also submitted that in case the college fails to comply with the conditions of affiliation the University can penalize the college in a variety of ways including disaffiliation. It is also submitted that the college is affiliated to the UGC and avails of liberal and frequent grants therefrom. In this premise, it is submitted that the Respondent college “is in receipt of substantial financial help from Panjab Government/UGC/Panjab University for betterment and advancement of the college.” It is also submitted that “the UGC is an apex body of the education system of India, primarily meant for disbursement of different grants to the affiliated colleges situated anywhere in India. The grants so sanctioned to the affiliated college is a Public money and is subject to disclose its information to the public on demand.”

6. Countering the points raised by the Complainant, the Respondent states that Khazan Singh (Director of the college) is fully competent to file the affidavit. It is submitted that he has been authorized to file the affidavit on behalf of the college and to represent it before the Commission. Furthermore, it is stated that affiliation of the college to Panjab University does not bring it within the purview of “public authority” as defined under Section 2(h) RTI Act 2005.

7. From the written /oral submissions made by the parties hereto, the following points need to be determined:-
(i) whether the Respondent college has been established under Section 27 Panjab University Act,
(ii) whether the control exercised over the college by the said University on account of its affiliation with the University clothes the college with the status of a “public authority”.
(iii) whether the financial aid received by the Respondent college as detailed in para 4 hereinabove, tantamounts to its being substantially financed by the appropriate Government i.e. the Panjab Government in the instant case.

8. Re (i) The argument based upon Section 27 of the Panjab University Act is not of any assistance to the Applicant. Section 27 does not mandate the establishment of the college in question. This section merely provides a procedure for the affiliation of colleges to the University. Seeking affiliation to an University is not equivalent to the college being set-up under the statute constituting the University. This submission of the Applicant, therefore, is without any substance.

9. Re (ii) The control exercised by the University over an affiliated college as per the provisions of the Panjab University Act and the various rules and regulations framed thereunder is merely regulatory. By virtue of such control, the affiliated college does not lose its autonomy and independent functioning. Moreover, even assuming that the control exercised by the University over an affiliated college is quite substantial, it will still not be of any help to the Applicant. The RTI Act 2005 requires control by the appropriate government for an institution/body to acquire the status of a public authority. The Panjab University is neither government nor appropriate government as envisaged under the RTI Act 2005. This argument is, thus, of no avail to the Applicant.

10 Re (iii)The question to be considered hereunder is whether the instances of financial assistance given by the UGC and the Punjab Government to the Respondent college can be termed as substantial financing of the Respondent college by the appropriate government. The perusal of the instances of the financial assistance detailed in para 4 hereinabove, unmistakably shows that these are for certain specified and limited purposes. Firstly the assistance in question is not receivable by the college as a matter of right and secondly it is not being provided frequently enough and thirdly the assistance is not of such magnitude as would substantially meet the infrastructural requirements of the college. It also leaves the entire expenditure on the payment of salaries of the teaching/non teaching staff of the college and on the provision, upkeep and maintenance of the necessary facilities to wit buildings, playgrounds, furniture, books, stationery, laboratories, libraries and sports equipment etc. uncovered. In this backdrop, it can not be held that the financial assistance referred to in para 4 hereinabove is of such nature as would qualify to be termed as substantial financing of the Respondent by the appropriate government.

11. In view of the foregoing, I hold that the Respondent college is not a “public authority” within the meaning of Section 2(h) RTI Act 2005. The RTI Act is, thus, not applicable to the Respondent. The instant application against the Respondent is not maintainable.

12. The MR-65 of 2008 is, therefore, dismissed. Copies of the order be sent to the parties.
