Chief Justice CJI Rajan Gogoi had earlier observed that no organization can destroy the name of transparency.

Agarwal then approached the Central Information Commission (CIC), which asked the court to disclose the information. Later, a petition was filed against the order in the Delhi High Court in January 2009 but was later upheld.
