Thread: Central Information Commission opens up UPSC finally: A landmark judgement


  1. Any updates on this topic so far?
    I would like to know.




  2. Only update available is that during the end of Nov.2006, the UPSC has moved the High Court filing a writ petition and seeking a stay on the operation of the CIC decision till the outcome of the writ petition. You can read the full text of this report under the "news" section in our home-page.

    Sunil,
    Don't get so excited as yet !
    There are several decisions of CIC not allowing inspection of answer sheets, etc. The justification given was that for open large scale exams, the numbers are too large for opening up everything to candidates. However, for smaller exams like departmental exams for promotion, etc., the public authority must allow access to the answer sheets.
    Why don't you make a RTI application for your GATE answer sheet and find out ?

    Sunil,
    have a look at this decision by CIC. Will clear up many doubts about answer sheets.

    karira,

    Thanks. I am aware of the judgement and however, operative portion of the judgement is similar to earlier to which I quoted as "landmark judgement".

    Section 8(1)(g) though speaks about third party and larger public interest. However, it clearly specifies that this is within prerogative of the CPIO or SPIO to decide whether it is in larger public interest or not.
    Thus, CPIOs and SPIOs can deny to furnish information in certain cases by analysing the facts in detail.

    Just heard on a news channel (DD News) today that a bench of the Delhi High Court has stayed the earlier order of the single judge bench till July.
    But cannot get any article posted on the net as yet. Will locate and post.
