Malnad Technical Education Society (R) Vs Karnataka Information Commission (Karnataka High Court)

In all these petitions, the essential question of law arises as under:

“Whether the societies and the educational institutions (aided) run by the societies are subject to Right to Information Act, 2005?

2. After service of notice, the respondents having entered appearance submit that wherever the educational institutions run by the societies are aided by the State, they cease to be ‘private bodies’ which otherwise would not fall within the precincts of the 2005 Act and if aided, that would metamorphoses them into public authorities as defined under Section 2(b) of the thereof. In support of these rival contentions, both the sides bank upon decision of the Apex Court in THALAPPALAM SR. COOP.BANK LTD & OTHERS, vs. STATE OF KERALA & OTHERS, 2013 SCC OnLine SC 915 and a Division Bench decision of this Court in R NARAYANAMURTHY v. POORNAPRAGANA HOUSE BUILDING COOPERATIVE SOCIETY & OTHERS, 2013 SCC OnLine Kar 9062.

3. Having heard the learned counsel for the parties and having perused the petition papers, this Court is of a considered opinion that the question raised before this Court being mixed question of law & facts, needs to be addressed by the respondent – Commission after hearing both the sides and in accordance with law. With this course of action, the Bar does not have any divergence.
