Ahmedabad: An Right to Information (RTI) query has recently shed light on an amusing information about the Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani. The Gujarat CM and BJP leader has no official email address to his credit, as revealed in an RTI reply by the CMO’s office. The people who want to reach out to the state top leader have to reach out to his website cmogujarat.gov.in
The General Administration Department (GAD), overlooks day-to-day service matters of the bureaucracy and the chief minister’s office. As per an official reply under RTI by GAD's public information officer MB Chauvatiya, the department has claimed that CM Vijay Rupani does not have an ‘official’ email ID.
In our opinion no. Information which is forbidden by law or information of a nature, if disclosed, would defeat the provisions of any law or disclosure whereof is opposed to public policy, cannot be regarded as lawful and is to be ignored and no disclosure thereof can be made or directed to be made.- HC
Once a purposive interpretation is given to Section 8, it will be found that information forbidden to be published [Section 8(1)(b)] and information available in fiduciary relationship [Section 8(1)(e)] is exempt.
In our opinion, even though there is no express order of any court of law forbidding publication of marks [as is the want of Section 8(1)(b)] but the effect of bringing the regime of grades in place of marks and of dismissal of challenge thereto, is to forbid publication/disclosure of marks. Similarly, in the evaluation process prescribed by appellant, for guidance of its examiners, marks are only to arrive at a grade, perhaps as aforesaid to acquaint the examiners with the grading system and as a transitory stage in the shift from marks to grades.
