Central Information Commission

Decision No. 287/IC(A)/2006

F. No. CIC/MA/A/2006/00417

Dated, the 20th September, 2006

  • Name of the Appellant: Sh. A.J. Gedam, “Jagannathshree”, 13-A, Vanjarinagar, P.O. Ajni, Nagpur – 440 003.
  • Name of the public Authority: State Bank of Hyderabad, Regional Office, Rachna Sansad, 1st floor, 278 S.G. Marg, Prabhadevi, Mumbai – 400 025.



Facts of the case:

  1. The appellant, an employee of the Bank, had sought information relating to the disciplinary proceedings initiated against another lady officer, and the complaint filed by her against the appellant.
  2. The CPIO refused to furnish the information on the ground that information sought relate to another person, the disclosure of which is not in public interest. Hence, exempt u/s 8(1) (j) of the Act. The appellate
    authority upheld the decision of the CPIO.
  3. Since there is no overriding public interest in disclosure of information sought, the denial of information by the CPIO u/s 8(1) (j) is justified.
  4. The appeal is accordingly dismissed.

Another interesting CIC decision by Hon IC Bhargava in Harinder Dhingra Vs. Oriental Bank of Commerce on officers involved in Vijaya mallaya scam...IC upheld the denial stating that it may endanger the life of such corrupt officials.
