Guwahati, June 25: Gauhati High Court has directed the Assam Public Service Commission to hold a "special interview" for a candidate who was denied marks by the commission in the Combined Competitive (mains) Examinations in 2013 and declared unsuccessful.

 

An RTI application later revealed that the candidate, Papari Deka, was denied nine marks in the general studies paper, while she was short of five marks to become eligible for viva voce. The Combined Competitive Examinations, that selects candidates for the state administrative, police and allied services, is held in three stages - preliminary, mains and viva voce.

 

When Deka did not find her roll number in the results of the main examination, which were declared on February 14 this year, she was surprised, as she believed that she had fared well. She then submitted an RTI application to the APSC, seeking certified photocopies of all her answer scripts.

3 weeks ago, Assam government had ordered a probe by an Additional Chief Secretary into the alleged irregularities in recently declared results of civil services examinations.

 

"The state government had told that five cases regarding anomalies in the civil services examinations conducted by the Assam Public Service Commission (APSC) have been referred to the one-man inquiry commission, headed by Additional Chief Secretary Subash Chandra Das,".

 

The government had received five specific cases regarding anomalies in the results of the civil services examination announced earlier this year and those cases would be probed by the one-man commission.

Unfortunately most people think that filing WP/SLP are easier in Courts. Once you make a personal attempt or contact your advocate (I mean common persons with limited financial capabilities) it must be frustrating.

Yesterday, I have been to Hyd to help one such appellant. The SC SLP wants all 1500 documents retyped afresh and with such number of copies to 27 defendants. All vernacular should be translated into English and the case must be neatly bounded and indexed. you know the proposed cost Rs.25,000/- only expenses for preparing SLP and minimum of 15 days time and engaging and following a notified translator @ Rs.500/- per document for 15 documents is extra. The documents must be given atleast for 10 typists separately to get it completed within 15 days as they are always busy in regular work and demand extra amount Rs.20/- per page in double space with arial font with sufficient margin and one side print.

Whereas the legal questinos involved are six, the procedure takes minimum of 15 days. The cost of getting a certified copy from HC in normal route is ruled out. To get certified copy of judgment minimum cost is Rs.1,000/- and time one month and more. Unless one experiences all this, one can not understand the hurdles involved.

In case of rich persons they can throw one lakh and keep happy in his chamber and every thing will be ready in a week. Normal persons can not get it completed even in 90 days, and to get it without objection is the most important task.

Once a normal goes he is sure to hate that system without a change from British time. For simple procedure of serving summons it takes 60 days, another 60 DAYS for filing written statement and another 60 days for prayer for extending time, holidays, vacations all this it gets a minimum of one year to come for a trilal, if every things goes normally. A hectic, boring and disgusting to proceed through Court. Never advise even your enemy to go to Court if his is a common man. He will kill himself unable to make follow up. No one is aware as to how to get certified copies when the file is sent to HC and when he can get also. One has to submit either original or duly certified copy only, even notarised exhibits are not allowed. Each page must be signed...all this is a herculean task.

      Decision No.292/IC(A)/2006
      F. No.CIC/MA/A/2006/00588


       

      Dated, the 21st September, 2006


       
       

      Name of the Appellant : Sh. Sharabh Dubey, 11/7 Civil Lines, Kanpur –208 001. (U.P.)
      Name of the Public Authority: The British India Corporation Limited, 14/136 Civil Lines, P.B. 77, Kanpur-208 001.
      DECISION
       
      Facts of the Case:
       

      The appellant is an employee of the respondent. He was transferred to another Unit of the company. The office order was challenged by him in the Court, which adjudicated on the matter. Subsequently, he has filed a few more petitions on service related matters in the Court. In this backdrop, he has sought documents relating to the legal opinion obtained by the respondent, file notings by the senior officials on the issue of transfer, letters/correspondence with other officials, etc.
      The CPIO has denied the information and sought exemption u/s 8(1)(d) & (g) of the Act.
      The case was heard on 12.9.06. The appellant could not be present. The CPIO and the appellate authority were present. In the course of hearing, the CPIO showed a copy of the petition filed by the appellant in the Court, whic hcontained almost all the documents asked for by him. The CPIO contended that the documents asked for by the appellant relate to the various petitions filed by him in the Court. He, therefore, pleaded that the disclosure of the documents might adversely affect the disputed cases. Hence, the relevant documents are treated as confidential.
       
      Commission’s Decision:
       

      There is a dispute between the appellant and the company on service matters, including transfer of the appellant to another unit. The matter is pending before the Court for adjudication. There is every possibility that the appellant would get opportunity for his effective defense. The information sought is in the interest of the seeker. And, as such, there is no overriding public interest, u/s 8(1)(j) of the Act, for disclosure of the information.
      The appeal is therefore dismissed.
