    Re: Evaluated Answer scripts are not confidential: A landmark judgement


    Please tell me CIC/RTI application or decesion no to give reference.

    The commission has ordered the Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) to make available the answerscripts free of cost to applicant E Ramamurthy, who sought copies of four answer scripts of the Gazetted Probationers Examinations, 1998.

    State chief information commissioner K K Misra and state information officer K A Thippeswamy have rejected the KPSC's plea, which said that answer scripts cannot be made public as they are exempted under Sec 8 (i) (e) and 8 (i) (j) of the RTI Act, 2005.

    KIC observed.

    More importantly, it has rejected the Central Information Commission's decision under Section 8 (i) (j) saying that seeking evaluated answer papers either his/her own or others is purely personal and has no relationship to any public interest or activity. "This view does not appear correct to this commission.

    Although the applicant is not to be asked the purpose for seeking information, in the present case, providing the information would ensure the impartiality, objectivity, and fairness of the evaluation by examiners appointed by public services commissions whose purpose incidentally is of utmost concern to the people," it stated.


    the KIC has held.

    The Punjab SIC does not agree with the decision of CIC as far as disclosing the answer sheets of third party. Law in this regard is yet to be settled. Until then, it is better to follow the procedure laid down in Sec 11 of the Act and decide.

    Pritam Ruz case is pertaining to university exam and not departmental or promotion exam. Hence quoting this case is irrelevant to departmental exam. YOu may peruse following links in connection with judgements for departmental exams and file first appeal:
