It raised concerns over the need to have a "filter" for people filing RTI who seek information but have nothing to do with the concerned issue.
"We can understand somebody asking information about Electoral Bonds, but asking information about tender of business... Why would someone without any interest want to get information?" said CJI Bobde.
