Speaking at an event to release a book written by retired bureaucrat Omesh Saigal about his experiences in the Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Jaitley went on to say: “Bureaucrats are free to render their advice and opinion during the process of decision making.”

He further went on to say: “However, the Right to Information Act can to some extent create hindrance in this regard, and civil servants may not feel free to do so, fearing that later his or her opinion may become public.”

In this regard, the Finance Minister cited former editor B.G Verghese as saying that advice given by public servants in the course of decision making should not be made public.
