New Delhi: After ruling that the office of Supreme Court of India comes under the ambit of the Right to Information (RTI) Act, the Central Information Commission (CIC) on Thursday said the office of Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha was also covered under the Act and should provide information as per its provisions.

Chief information commissioner Wajahat Habibullah said “office of Leader of Opposition is a public authority” as it is created by a notification of the government but reserved his decision whether it was part of Lok Sabha secretariat or an independent office. TNN
