karira posted a topic in Discussions on RTICan a PA give a preemptive denial to a RTI request - even before it is filed ? I was surprised to see a press release by UPSC, on the subject of Civil Services exam results, issued by the PIB. It is available here: http://www.upsc.gov.in/exams/written-results/csp/2014/csp2014finalcopy_Result_Eng.pdf Interesting part is in para 2 on page 2 of the press release: Candidates are also informed that marks, cut off marks and answer keys of Civil Services (Preliminary) Examination 2014 will be provided only after the entire process of the Civil Services Examination, 2014, is over i.e. after the declaration of final result. Therefore, No application under RTI Act, 2005 or otherwise will be entertained in this regard. Can a PA preemptively deny information even before a request is made under RTI ? If yes, under which section of the RTI Act 2005 ?
Respected, I appeared for UPSC CS(P) Exam, in which I was not selected as I'm confident of it. While a boy who was behind me and was absent Qualified the very same exam. Which embarrassed every of us. So, please describe me the complete procedure to obtain Mark-sheet and appropriate reason for his selection through RTI . . .?
karira posted a topic in RTI in MediaAs reported by Chetan Chauhan in hindustantimes.com on 11 July 2010: CIC asks UPSC to disclose merit list of candidates - Hindustan Times CIC asks UPSC to disclose merit list of candidates Transparency watchdog the Central Information Commission (CIC) has asked the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to disclose merit list of persons and the criteria applied for selection in different government jobs. The CIC order can have implications for UPSC as now the candidates can seek information regarding the process of selection in the government jobs, which the commission had not been willing to disclose. The commission recruits employees for most of the Central government organizations. The UPSC has declined providing the merit list of the lecturers appointed in Medical College, Chandigarh, on the ground that the information pertained to “the core areas of the commission and the same will not serve any public interest or activity”. In a reply to an RTI application of Dr Ashok Kumar Singh, the UPSC also said that the information sought was held under a fiduciary relationship and is exempted from disclosure under the transparency law. The commission had rejected Kumar’s application for the job stating that he was over-age, following which he filed an application seeking criteria and merit list of the selected candidates. Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah did not agree with UPSC’s contention saying the information regarding the candidates selected did not fall under the definition of fiduciary relationship as defined by different courts. The CIC defined fiduciary relationship as the “one of moral or personal responsibility, due to the better or superior knowledge or training, or superior status of the fiduciary as compared to the one whose affairs he handles”. In case of information regarding the candidates, the CIC said, the fiduciary clause was not applicable, as UPSC was not legally bound to withhold the information. “The UPSC is, therefore, advised to review its policy on disclosure of information of this nature,” Habibullah said in his order this week.
