Transfer of title deed under CGEWHO

The appellant sought for the list of beneficiaries and the office to which they served at the time of allotment of CGEWHO dwelling houses of different types claiming irregularity in the transfer of his title deed. The PIO denied the information under section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act. The CIC observed that as far as the welfare schemes are concerned, the Government has a duty to maintain total transparency in the interest of better implementation. The CIC further held that a Title deed is a registered document indicating the transfer of property, which is a public activity by public authority. This cannot be termed as private information of a third party. Observing that the denying information about public welfare schemes of the government on the ground of privacy of some other person is sheer abuse of right to privacy by the Government and deliberate violation of RTI Act, the CIC issued a show cause to the PIO and deemed PIO why maximum penalty should not be imposed against each of them for not providing the information. The public authority was directed to explain why it should not be ordered to pay compensation to the appellant.


Registration means giving a notice to public in general, so that people know that such property has been already transferred, which implies that it could not be further transferred. As per the Transfer of Property Act and Registration Act, registration of property is a compulsory statutory condition which essentially provides for maintenance of records of transaction and public access to it. Anybody can seek to find encumbrances on any registered immovable property as per the provision of these laws.
