There were pages of information in the thread. Salary of an employee is not third party information and should be under voluntary disclosure.

But remember it does not give authority to demand pay slip and confine to Gross emoluments alone.

(You can also find copy of decision in portal website. We have sufficient experts, who upload any important decision, the moment that is uploaded in CIC and if there is controversial issue, or guidance to appellants.)
