When information is held under fiduciary relationship

Information which is required to be disclosed under any enactment and/or any provision of law, cannot be held to be given under fiduciary relationship.
In Reserve Bank of India v. Jayantilal N. Mistry (SC), it has been held by the Hon’ble Supreme Court that:
“62. However, where information is required by mandate of law to be provided to an authority, it cannot be said that such information is being provided in a fiduciary relationship.”
