Thread: Is Information on application form on priscribed format for a post personal document

    Re: Is Information on application form on priscribed format for a post personal document


    If the information is about one or two selected candidates it may be supplied because after selection as a govt servant such personal data becomes matters of public record. But if someone asks for information pertaining to large number of candidates then the PA may justifiably take the plea of disproportionately diverting the resources and deny it. In this case it appears to be so. That is why the PA has offered to show the files. That is fair enough.

    It is interesting to note from the CIC order quoted that the PA is allowed to collect further fee representing 'the cost of collecting and collating the information!' Does the Act provide for such levy?

    I think P.A. is not entitled to charges for collecting and collating information.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
