Denial to RTI based upon no records available


Kapil Dheer

Dear members, 

My sister had filed an rti at labour department for sharing the service records, graduity, pf & salary certificates of a private school she worked. School had earlier denied giving her the records. 

The PIO denied supplying the information stating that they can supply only the information present in their records. Can't generate a new piece of information. 

The FAA also repeated the PIO response. 

We now intend to appeal in CIC for the needed information. So I request fellow members to share some CIC verdicts which could have asked a department, preferably Labour to arrange for records from a private organisation of its employee. 

Information is related to self so first party and a private firm coming under jurisdiction & abide the rules of Labour deptt. 

Best Regards,

Go through DOPT directives, and as per DOPT directives a PIO can only provide that record which is available in his custody in material form and he is not expected to collect and collate information because a citizen has asked.  There may be some decisions by great stalwarts like Hon.IC Sridhar Acharya, who goes beyond RTI Act and orders for such providing of information.

If she wants a record of her own, the simple way is issuing a legal notice to school and then making a complaint to DEO in writing and then following the advice of advocate.

You can also try by filing application to the Board / DEO seeking information seeking for such orders/notifications/circulars/directives that state about the procedure to be followed on relieving a regular employee in private schools, which will be helpful for further footing.

      India being a socialist, democratic and secular democratic republic, the quest to obtain the information about the religion professed or not professed by a citizen cannot be in any event, be considered to be in public interest, which information is strictly confidential as per Section 15 of the Census Act, 1948. Mere terming of the members of the 'family' in respect of which the information is sought as public figures and the leaders of nation, cannot change the statutory impact of the above provisions.
      It is thus evident that the petitioner is making efforts to make unjustified inroads into the privacy of said individuals even if they are public figures. Consequently, the information supplied to the Census Officer cannot be made public in view of the statutory bar imposed by Section 15 of the Census Act which is not inconsistent with Section 22 read with section 8(1)(j) of the Right to Information Act, 2005. Accordingly, we find no merit in this appeal which stands dismissed.- Punjab & Haryana High Court
