Disclosure of beneficiaries of the Anganwadi centres

The appellant sought the names of all beneficiaries including pregnant and lactating women at Anganwadi Centre situated at a particular village but did not get any response from the public authority. The CIC directed the PIO of Ministry of WCD to issue necessary guidelines for voluntary disclosures as per the mandate under Section 4 of RTI Act for the guidance of all Child Development Project Officers, ICDS Project to provide complete information voluntarily on their websites, which would eventually benefit the appellant also. The CIC directed that all CDPOs of ICDS project all over the country to voluntarily publish the month-wise expenditure incurred for functioning and maintenance of Anganwadi centres, names of the beneficiaries, details of benefits regularly on their website and display the printed copies conspicuously on notice board.


Though the State Governments directly monitor and supervise the functioning of Anganwadi centres, this massive programme receives around 50% of the funds (Rs. 16,000 crores approximately) from the Central Government. Section 4(1)(b) of RTI Act, clause (xii) mandates voluntary disclosure of the manner of execution of subsidy programs, including the amounts allocated and the details of beneficiaries of such programs; and under clause (xiii) the particulars of recipients of concessions, permits or authorizations granted by it. Therefore, it is the mandatory duty of the every public authority to disclose complete details of money spent on subsidy program like that of the ICDS on Anganwadies including the details of each individual beneficiary of this program.
