During the Corona virus epidemic, where Aarogya Setu app was made mandatory everywhere in India, now question marks are being raised regarding this app. Yes, recently some information related to the app was sought in an RTI, to which the National Informatics Center (NIC) was unable to answer. The Central Information Commission on Tuesday questioned the National Informatics Center (NIC) as to how despite having the name of Aarogya Setu app on their website, they have been unable to provide information about the creator of this app. The Commission has also issued notices to various Chief Public Information Officers (CPIOs) as well as the National e-Governance Division (NeGD), Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and NIC for not providing clear answers to the RTI application related to the contact tracing app. Show cause notice has been issued.

Taking action on the complaint against NIC by activist Saurav Das, the Commission has questioned the NIC CPIO as to why he could not give a clear answer to the RTI application filed by the petitioner. Let us tell you that this information was first available on the Legal Case Tracing website. LiveLaw.in Was given by.

The Information Commissioner said in the order, “The Commission directs the CPIO, NIC to explain in writing how the website https://aarogyasetu.gov.in/ was created with the domain name gov.in, if their I didn’t have any information about it.”

The petition filed by Das said that NIC, NeGD and MeitY have been unable to provide information related to the creation of the Aarogya Setu app. Let us tell you, the complainant had sought information like the origin of the proposal of the app, details of the approval it received, a copy of the conversations held between the companies, individuals and government departments involved as well as the people who developed the app.

Apart from giving directions to the government bodies, the Commission in its judgment also noted that the NeGD CPIO could not explain why there was a delay of almost two months in responding to the RTI application, that too in replying that His department does not have the requested information.
