Q4. You are the PIO (Public Information Officer) for Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. Your Ministry has enormous health statistics at treasure. These involve sensitive health information of many citizens. Such information is denied to be given under RTI to any applicant since they come under ‘third-party information’. However, many pharmaceutical MNCs are interested in availing such information by any means since they have high commercial value for research and development. Now, disregarding citizen’s privacy, your Minister has asked you to share the information in a camouflaged manner to an MNC which funded his party heftily. The company will file an RTI for name-sake and third-party information is asked to be shared through RTI reply. By doing this, you are promised a plum- post in government after retirement.
