akhilesh yadav posted a topic in RTI in MediaInfo panel asks GU to furnish answer sheets to BA student As reported by indianexpress.com on Nov 08, 2012 Info panel asks GU to furnish answer sheets to BA student - Indian Express Observing that evaluated answer sheets fall under the “records” category in the definition of “information” under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, the Gujarat Information Commission (GIC) has ordered the Gujarat University (GU) to furnish answer sheets to a BA student who had sought these but was denied in September. Mihir Acharya, a final-year student of English Literature at the university, said he had appeared in a “Literary Criticism” in April, but was marked below his expectations. He applied for a re-assessment, but again got less than he expected. “I applied for a second re-assessment, but that too did not give me the marks I thought I deserved,” Acharya said. That was when he heard about the Supreme Court's judgement of August 9, which allowed students to examine their corrected answer sheets. Three days later, he filed an RTI application with the university asking for “certified copies of evaluated answer sheets of Third-Year Bachelor of Arts Paper-9 - Literary Criticism, conducted by Gujarat University in April 2012”, the GIC order said. However, GU's Public Information officer (PIO) replied saying “the aforesaid matter is under the consideration of Gujarat University Executive Council. After the decision of the Executive Council, copy of evaluated answer sheet will be furnished”. Subsequently, Acharya appealed to the GIC, which observed that request for information made under RTI must either be provided or rejected “as expeditiously as possible and in any case within 30 days from the receipt of the request”. “The Commission is also of the view that evaluated answer sheets in the examination conducted by the GU would fall under the definition of 'information' given in section 2(f) of the RTI Act, 2005. Such answer sheets would be 'records' within the meaning of information,” the GIC order, signed by its chief D Rajagopalan, said. The order also referred to the SC judgement, and has asked GU to furnish the answer sheets to Acharya within 15 days.
Hi, I have completed M.Sc.(Chemistry) with first rank from Gujarat University in July, 2012. I will be awarded with INSPIRE fellowship from DST, Govt. of India perhaps in January, 2013.

rajaneesan posted a question in Ask for Non RTI SupportDear Members, In Gujarat University, they do not have the provision to enable the student to improve the final result/ percentages. Neither they can reappear in the same subject. Hence the people who are on border in fifties, can not dream to appear UGC NET exams or for any other reason. They fail to understand such requirements. Can anyone tell me how to start this subject of improvement exams so that the university start a scheme where upon students in the previous years, can better their results. Thanks and regards, Rajaneesan
As reported by Kapil Dave in dnaindia.com on 8 July 2008: DNA - India - RTI questions GU V-C’s right to go on leave - Daily News & Analysis RTI questions GU V-C’s right to go on leave Information commissioner orders the varsity to provide data on his absence within 10 days GANDHINAGAR: Gujarat University (GU) vice-chancellor (V-C) Parimal Trivedi will now have to furnish details of his attendance since he took over charge. Acting on a complaint, state RTI commissioner RN Das has ordered GU PIO (Public Information Officer) to provide this information within 10 days. GU Arts department’s dean Dr Pradip Prajapati filed an RTI application in the university seeking records of Trivedi’s attendance. In the application, he had asked: Whom did the V-C inform when he went on leave? With whose permission did he go out of the state? Who was given charge in his absence? The university first declined to furnish the information stating such personal details could not be given under the RTI Act. After the applicant complained to the RTI commission, the university sought one months’ time to furnish the information. Hearing the applicant and university representative, the commissioner said information sought about V-C’s attendance did not relate to his personal life, but pertained to his service as a public servant. Going by the law, it is also mandatory to inform and take the permission of the chancellor of the university (governor of the state) before going on leave and so, the university can not deny any such information, the commission said. The commissioner has ordered to provide the information to the applicant within 10 days. Trivedi is facing the heat in many RTI cases. Around 10 complaints and appeals are in various stages in the RTI commission, seeking different information about Trivedi and decisions taken by him in the university. The commissioner has issued orders to the university regarding recruitment in MEd department (in which Trivedi has been alleged to recruit his wife ignoring other competent candidates). Action taken by the university regarding the governor’s July 6, 2005 letter has also been argued.
