JK Bank may challenge SIC decision in HC
Srinagar, Apr 26: Apprehending that disclosure of information by it under J&K Right to Information Act-2009 may “breach the trust with depositors,” J&K Bank (Limited) is mulling to challenge the State Information Commission (SIC) decision, which brought it under the purview of the Act, before the High Court.
Two days after the Bank was declared as “Public Authority” under RTI Act- 2009, the Bank’s counsel said that they are examining the judgment of SIC, and “may approach the High Court against the decision”.
Talking to Greater Kashmir, Senior High Court lawyer and J&K Bank counsel Z. A. Shah said that the Bank is examining the decision of the Commission and will take a view thereafter.
“The Bank’s view is that there is an element of confidentially between the depositors and the Bank. And, bringing the Bank under RIT Act is likely to disturb that confidentiality. It is therefore important for the Bank to consider implications of the judgment,” he said.
Notably, the SIC on Tuesday declared J&K Bank as Public Authority, entitling people to seek information from it under RTI Act.
