Dear member, when a candidate submits his application for appointment to a public authority's under post, it becomes a public document and its disclosure can not be objected on the ground of invasion of privacy. There are some decisions of IC also.

First learn to set aside all doubts and apprehensions, and always seek information under RTI Act, as such attempts cost only Rs.32/- come back with denials then members can guide you with suggestions during first and second appeals.

Members, please do not hesitate and file applications ignoring the outcome as there are further two chances that can be availed without not making any attempts with preconclusions.

      The Apex court has observed that "disclosure of information in regard to the functioning of the government must be the rule, and secrecy, an exception justified only where the strictest requirement of public interest so demands "
