    Re: Query on govt employee


    It all depends on how you define service record. If by service record you mean service book, then in my opinion, it can be disclosed because it is only a chronological record of events happening in an employees career like appointment, increment, promotion, penalties etc. It also has his name, date of birth permanent address etc. None of this exempted by any section of the RTI. As long as one is a govt employee all these particulars are to be disclosed in public interest. If by service record you mean the personal file, where the nominations and other details of family members are kept, it involves the right and privacy of persons other than the public servant and hence cannot be disclosed without their consent. This will fall under the exemptions provided inthe Act.

    dear sirs,

    Govt. employee means he is public employee, so any thing related to him can be disclosed.

    dear rakatkam, anything related to the office of the govt.employee is in the public domain. anything related to his person is not unless there is an overriding public interest angle.l

    Rakatkamji,
    Only a Govt employee is an employee of the Govt. Not all his family members and not the whole family.

    sirs,

    I totally agree with what vashistavivek is telling. Because any govt. employee of any level is for working the public either in direct or indirect manner.

    So, every citizen is having right to know the service details of any govt. employee.

    Unless you know you cannot tell what public interest could be satisfied.

    Service record doesnot contain anything about the private life of the Govt. Servant. Rather, it contains records of his interaction with the Govt. and cannot be treated as intensely personal and specific.

    Thanks for the post. But, nominations etc., in my opinion, is not that much private that cannot be disclosed.
