Disciplinary proceedings are not human rights violation: Delhi HC

Disciplinary proceedings are not human rights violation and security agencies, exempted from the purview of the RTI Act, need not provide information on such issues, the Delhi High Court has ruled.


The ruling by Justice Vibhu Bakhru came on a CBI plea challenging a Central Information Commission (CIC) order directing the agency to provide one of its officers the status and details of disciplinary proceedings against him.


The court set aside the CIC’s order of June 9, 2017, saying that the commission “fell in error” by issuing the direction.


The verdict assumes significance as agencies which are exempted from the purview of the Right to Information (RTI) Act, are required under the transparency law to provide information they have pertaining to human rights violation and corruption.

Hope that some one comes back with details of such judgment. I feel sorry for some Govt officials who are facing disciplinary proceedings pending more than a decade. Those officials that are facing such disciplinary proceedings can only understand the misery and suffering for decades, each night. There should be a time frame for all those proceedings as innocent officials may also get framed on frivolous charges.

(I know one upright and sincere IAS officer faced such charge as A7, acquitted by HC and officials of ACB/Police have taken opportunity of arresting him, when he is performing the marriage of his daughter, and he was once Executive officer of the most richest temple in India)
