In a landmark judgment, Information Commissioner Hemant Atri has ruled that the wife of a government employee having a marital dispute cannot be denied official information about her spouse on the grounds of privacy. The spouse is not a third party, but very much an affected party, hence information about declaration under Section 18 (2) of Haryana Civil Services (Government Employees’ Conduct) Rules, 2016, can be disclosed, he ruled.

 

Atri has observed that the government official in this particular case has not furnished a declaration under Section 18 (2) of Haryana Civil Services (Government Employees’ Conduct) Rules, 2016. He has directed the state Chief Secretary to ensure within 45 days, with intimation to his office, that every employee after his marriage makes a declaration under section 18 (2) to his head of department that he has not taken any dowry. The declaration is required to the signed by his wife, father and father-in-law.
