By Anuradha Verma

Are the Supreme Court and Parliament buildings safe?
The appellant sought certified copies of latest Fire Safety Certificates issued by the competent authority to buildings of Parliament and Supreme Court of India which was denied claiming that the information was related to sensitive buildings and could not be disclosed. The Central Information Commission (CIC) called for the concerned files from the Delhi Fire Service department for perusal. After examination, the CIC observed that questions like 'whether fire safety certificate was issued or not, what was the advice of the respondent authority regarding fire safety' are 'safety' related questions and not security threatening. Ignoring fire safety issues would raise security concerns and it is a grave matter of life of hundreds of Constitutional office holders, hence the information sought is matter relating to life which should have been answered within 48 hours. Expressing concern over the public interest in the information request of appellant regarding preventive measures and implementation fire safety norms in Supreme Court and Parliament Buildings, the CIC directed the Fire Safety department to take a serious note of fire safety lapses in the aforesaid buildings and directed to appraise the authorities in Legislature and Judiciary about necessity and importance of taking the measures recommended by them. The CIC also directed the Fire Safety department to inform the appellant and the CIC why they have not performed their duties as prescribed under The Delhi Fire Services Act, 2007. Further, the CIC recommended to the Fire Safety department, the PIO of Supreme Court of India and Parliament of India to inform the appellant and the CIC regarding the measures initiated by them to comply with the safety standards/ safety recommendations against fire, within one month from the date of receipt of the order.
