HPSC conducted interviews for SDE in HUDa. Kept 60 marks for interview out of total 100. all candidates having maximun marks of 30 were ignored. when asked under RTI they refused to divulge the details of selection criteria, saying this is secret and have not prepared any notings or documnets for finalisation of selection criteria.
Can they refuse the details?
Is there any judgement limiting the marks in interview?
Cant they select the lowest in merit, leaving the highest
From your details, it seems they don't have any legitimate grounds for doing what they have done, be it the selection process or the decision on RTI application. So you will be justified in filing 1st appeal on grounds of deemed refusal to supply information
