Denial of information to a student is denial of employment and breach of his right to life

Recommended Posts


Appellant had sought copy of service record of his late father. CPIO denied stating no information is available. The Commission observed that: Denial of information to appellant who is a young boy of 20 years of age study in BSc means denial of employment that again means breach of his right to life under Article 21 of Constitution of India. Commission issued SCN for penalty, disciplinary proceedings and compensation.

R/Rao sir, thanks. I think no other ICs go in deep to give satisfaction to appellants as well as PIOs using powers vested in them. Really appreciable.

      In one of the case, the applicant got the reply:
      The information asked by you is confidential and cannot be supplied. This is with the authority of the competent authority.
      When I asked weather the one who replied was CPIO, he said no!
      I want to ask weather the information asked to CPIO be signed by subordinate?
      And there was no mention as to why the information denied, I believe there there is no confidentiallity except for those coming under secnd schedule?
      A word of reply would be appreciated, as the person approached me for advice.

      Andhra Pradesh Pollution Control Board is diluting the implementation of RTI act by giving incomplete and irrelevant information to applicants and also denying information under 8 d frequently. They are protecting the violators rather than the people who are subjected to pollution from industries. This is my own experience and that of others I know.
      Hexavalent chromium is a highly toxic poison and strictly regulated all over the world. Here in Andhra Pradesh, industries producing chromium chemicals by outdated technology are generating about 10000 tonnes per annum of waste containing hexavalent chromium that is detrimental to all forms of life. It is being stocked in the plant premises in violation of environmental regulations without proper protections. One plant has stocked about 30000 tonnes in an open area. Hema Chemicals in Ahmedabad, Golden Chemicals in Dahisar, and Tamilnadu chromates in Ranipet have severly polluted the land and groundwater all around their plant. Several workers have died of lung cancer and many had nasal perforations, amputations etc.
      Exposure of workers to chromium dust is neither monitored nor controlled with industrial hygiene measures. Permissions for operation are issued without proper assessment of the dangers. Recent permission was issued after complaint from several citizens was pending.
      I have raised a number of questions and sought information and they have not given proper information. I had to continue asking further specific questions that expose the failure of APPCB as a regulatory authority.
      Now I get a letter saying that the companies have replied requesting the board not to reveal the information/ records to the third party under section 8 (d) of the Right to Information Act, 2005.
      Now I am giving first appeal. Any specific orders from any state information commission dealing with pollution cases may be brought to my notice for strengthening my appeal.
      Babu Rao
