Smriti Irani's board results- Right to privacy not an issue if marks of students are available online: Delhi HC

Recommended Posts

If the CBSE exam marks are available online now, then there can be no claim of right to privacy for the previous students, the Delhi high court said on Thursday.

 

The court’s observation came during the hearing of the Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) plea challenging a Central Information Commission (CIC) direction allowing inspection of Union minister Smriti Irani’s Class 10th and Class 12th records to an applicant under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.

 

“Are all the CBSE marks of students available in the public domain today? If it is possible today, then you cannot say there is a right of privacy qua results of earlier students,” Justice Vibhu Bakhru observed.

Very Good. When CIC directed appellant only for inspection of a particular record, Court has observed blanket rights to all. Interesting, CBSE my go for RP to SC because they can afford.

Hungry is not only for stomach and one such hungry is for cheap publicity. But, no one finds such cases as misuse / abuse of RTI and gives such useless information as first page coverage. Surprisingly, some courts / Information commissioners do not pass any strictures against the petitioners and deal the cases with extra ordinary interest. Not only applicants, such concerned persons that deliver such decisions are more hungry for cheap publicity.

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
       
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.

      Hello,
      I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society.
      The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is:
      1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information?
      2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I?
      3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 
      4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt?
      Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.
