Advertisement for recruitment and revealing information are two different things. There is no bar for advertising for recruitment. But furnishing all sorts of information to all information seekers is a different thing. In fact the information asked for by the applicant in this case (sachin21t) is not a strategic or scientifically important matter that needs to be protected. But the law has to be uniform. While clubbing so many organisations under one schedule, it cannot elaborately list all information that can be furnished or can not be furnished. It has to only say a common denominator.that is applicable to all the organisations clubbed in this schedule. But the organisations can exercise their discretion and dish out info that are not to be protected. In fact that is how similar information has been given out in some other case by the same DRDO as pointed out by Mr Karira in post #7! However, in this case it has taken a lazier and safer route of denying the info, which is ofcourse, legally correct. Such prevarications are not avoidable in a vast organisation like DRDO. Getting same info from Ministry of Defence, as suggested by you is not possible. They will simply pass on the request to DRDO as per the RTI Act!
In number of cases, the Hon'CIC has passed orders that establishment matters are not exempted under Sec 24 (1). If u visiit CIC website u can get number of decisions.
