Q. With reference to PM CARE Fund, consider the following statements:
1. It is a statutory fund, established under the Disaster Management Act of 2005.
2. It comes under the ambit of RTI (Right to Information).
Which of the statements given above is/are correct?
Statement 1 & 2 are incorrect: PM CARES has not been established under any statuette or notification, so it does not come under the definition of public authority under RTI. But it is declared to be under PMO, and thus should come under public scrutiny. Moreover it used official symbols like Ashok Chakra and PM openly seeks support and donations to PM CARE’s funds. IT even provides tax-relief or rebates to donors but does not give any information of its donors.
