    Now the discussion on the issue related to ACR disclosure should come to an end and the tag should be closed after the judgement of the Apex Court delivered on 13.5.2008 in the case Dev Dutt Vs Union of India and others.adil

    Disclosure Of Annual Confidential Reports Under The Rti Act 2005



    It has been decided by the DOP&T in consultation with the Dept of Legal Affairs that it is the discretion of the public authority to disclose or not to disclose the ACRs of an officer to himself or to any other applicant. But at the same time if the public authority is satisfied that the public interest in disclosure outwieghs the harm to the protected interests. If it is felt that public interest in disclusire of ACR of any employee outweighs the protected interests, decision to disclose the ACRs should be taken with the approval of the competent authority. Competent authority in the matter may be decided by the concerned public authority.

    If adverse remarks can be communicated to the employee then why not good remarks be shown to him as well.
    As many a times ACR's are written vindictively hence the disclosure causes embrassment to the employer/Govt.
    A fair assessment in the ACR cannot cause embrassment to anyone.
    To avoid misuse and abuse of the provisions of entries in ACR's, it must be disclosed to the amployee (his own ACR) who wish to see them on request.

    I think the logic and purpose of seeking information is linked up with bringing transparency in decision making process and writing of ACR's cannot be left out of this basic need.
    The fear of increase in court cases as someone has posted is a bogey.
    Increase in litigation should not be a reason to stall compliance machanism of rights in a democratic setup.
    The fear of exposure through transparency would act as a detterent to those who misuse and abuse the instrument of ACRs'
    thnks
