In Madhya Pradesh, which is in the throes of elections, the state government has denied the request of an anti-corruption activist and refused to share details of meetings of the state civil services board because they are “confidential” and barred under the RTI Act.
Activist Ajay Dubey had filed an RTI application with the state government to know the details of proceedings of the board during the months of July, August and September last year.
The civil services board is meant to be headed by the chief secretary state and has a seniormost additional chief secretary or chairman, the board of revenue, the financial commissioner or an officer of equivalent rank and status as a member. In addition, it has a principal secretary or secretary, department of personnel, in the state government as member secretary.
