Vague request or general information sought

High Court of Bombay in the case of The State Information Commissioner vs. Tushar Dhananjay Mandlekar (W.P. (C) No. 3818 of 2010) dated 30.07.2012 has observed:
“It is apparent from a reading of what is stated above that instead of seeking information on some specific issues, the respondent sought general information on scores of matters. The application is vague and the application does not make it clear to the Information Officer as to what information is actually sought by the respondent from the Officer. It was literally impossible for the appellants, as pointed by the learned Assistant Government Pleader, to supply the entire information sought by the respondent to the respondent within a period of 30 days. The documents ran into 3419 pages…………… We are clearly of the view in the aforesaid backdrop that the application was filed with a mala fide intention and with a view to abuse the process of law.”
