Continuing with its tradition to disregard the Right to Information (RTI) Act, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) once again failed to uphold the provisions of the Act by not sharing information on bank inspection reports. In fact, when in 2015 the Supreme Court itself had directed the RBI to share the reports under RTI, the central bank has gone one step ahead and denied information citing one paragraph from the apex court ruling. Even in April this year, the apex court rejected a plea filed by banks to recall the 2015 judgement asking the RBI to disclose the list of loan defaulters and bank inspection reports under the RTI Act.
