VTU University RTI - Undr "Life or Liberty"??


Raja Kulkarni

Dear All,

I am a student of VTU University in Karnataka (which has become famous for all kinds of scams and irregularities).

I have applied for RTI application under the clause "Life or liberty" of the Act -- referring to my liberty as a citizen of India, to enjoy continuous education without hindrance from any third party.

My issue is that one exam paper of mine has been evaluated for less marks. After that I applied for "Revaluation" (by paying Rs500) and subsequently for challenge Revaluation" (by paying Rs5000) ; both these options are available to all students under the university for all the exams. (Infact, the university make approx 3.5 cr every 6 months, ie, every semester, in this fashion). Even after opting for these two options, my marks have not been increased, even though i deserve more, and hence I have failed in the subject.

Due to this I will be loosing one academic year (my liberty to education). Hence I have applied for an RTI, asking for details of the name, experience, qualification of the professors who have evaluated my paper. Also I have asked for the answer-key according to which the university has evaluated the paper..


In this case, would the application come under the "life or liberty" clause??

Please guide me accordingly, asap.

Thanks in advance

Normally such matters do not attract life and liberty clause, though you may invoke in application. In addition, names or identity of evaluators will also not be revealed.
