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.
Information sought with regard to marks in Civil Services Exam cannot be directed to be furnished mechanically. Furnishing raw marks will cause problems as pleaded by the UPSC which will not be in public interest.
The Supreme Court has held that raw and scaled marks awarded to candidates in Civil Services (Prelims) examination cannot be revealed under the Right to Information Act and set aside the Delhi high court order asking UPSC to disclose the marks. The Commission contended that the corrections made in the answer book would likely arouse doubt and perhaps even suspicion in the candidate’s mind and this would not only breed grievances, but would likely lead to litigation.
