In a landmark verdict on January 10, 2010, the Delhi High Court had held that the CJI's office comes within the ambit of the RTI, saying judicial independence was not a judge's privilege, but a responsibility cast upon him. … [Read more...] about CJI’s Office to Come Under RTI Ambit, Rules SC in Big Step Towards Judicial Transparency
