Thread: Exam Key
I am working in BSNL recently in the month of Dec 2012 dept was conducted the Junior Accounts officer exam for departmental candidates(Result not yet issued). I was applied for the KEY for the said exam, but the CPIO replied that the "Evaluation of Answer Books is under process. Hence answer key of the said exam cannot be provided at this stage". My doubt is whether any Rule that the KEY for exams not to issued? if yes then how in the News papers for some exam`s KEY or Provisional KEY will be published on the next day of the exams. Can i appeal to the Appellate Authority? if tehre is provision that the KEY can be issued before declaration of the result/ evaluation is under process. Please clarify me
Re: Exam key
If you are not satisfied with the response provided by the PIO, then you need to file a first appeal against the PIO's decision with the concerned First Appellate Authority under section 19(1) of the RTI Act, with your grounds of first appeal as follows:
Grounds of First Appeal:
1. As per section 7(1) of the RTI Act, a PIO is supposed to either provide the requested information on payment of such fee as may be prescribed or reject the request for any of the reasons specified in sections 8 and 9.
The PIO has neither provided the requested information, nor specified the relevant & applicable provisions of section 8 & 9 of the RTI Act under which the information has been declined.
Hence, the PIO has disposed of the RTI application in violation of the provision of section 7(1) of the RTI Act.
2. Similarly .....
1. Kindly direct the PIO to dispose of the said RTI application in accordance with the provision of section 7(1) of the RTI Act.
2. Kindly direct the PIO to justify in compliance with the section 19(5) of the RTI Act, the denial of the requested information without specifying the provisions of section 8 & 9 of the RTI Act.
3. Similarly .....

Re: Exam Key
here is the same case regarding exam key, study that, it will be helpful to file your appeal:-
In one more appeal against CPIO of Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research in Puducherry CIC give the order to provide the question paper along with the answer key of an entrance exam conducted by it for admission.RTI application was filed by Puducherry Government Medical Officers' Association general secretary Dr K Sudhakar with the Jipmer public information officer (PIO), seeking a copy of the question paper and answer key of the entrance examination held in July 2011 for admission to MCh in urology. PIO James Sekar denied the information on the ground that it was not the practice of the institute to share question papers of entrance tests. Sudhakar then approached the first appellate authority, which declared that it was "satisfied with the PIO's reply."
Undeterred, Sudhakar moved the CIC. Central information commissioner Shailesh Gandhi, after hearing the case through videoconference, ordered the PIO to furnish a copy of the question paper with answer key by February 10.The detailed order you can find from the CIC' web site.
