    Everyone has to adjust with the changing times and also obey the laws of the land - whether they like it or not, whether is convenient or not - even if they have to climb Mount Everest.

    Student cannot demand photocopy of answer script under RTI: HC

    Allahabad, Feb 20: In a significant judgement, the Allahabad High Court on Friday ruled that a student cannot ask for his or her examination answer scripts under the Right to Information Act.

    The order was passed by Justice Rakesh Tiwari while dismissing a writ petition filed by one Mahraj Khan, who had appeared for her high school examinations last year and secured 57 percent marks.

    The court was of the view that providing photocopies of Board examinations to a student "would open a way for the students for self-assessment".

    The petitioner had moved the court with the grievance that she had not been provided photocopy of answer scripts of her High School examinations despite having applied for the same on twenty seventh June last year.

    She had also claimed that information sought by her, vide another application dated 11.11.2008, regarding a number of subjects in which she had appeared were not provided by the Board which told her that her answer scripts had been weeded out.

    However, the Court observed "right of a person under the Right to Information Act cannot be protected beyond the provisions of law. The petitioner can only seek information or may be provided copies of the documents which are permissible to be provided under the law or have not been weeded out as in the present case".

    It appears that the subject case is not of denying rigt to information, HC has only clarify that documents weeded out cannot be reproduced and hence there is no conflicting decisions.

    Yes, that seems to be correct.
    Better to wait and read the full judgement before drawing any conclusion.
