The applicant sought certain information like, how any candidates have finally been selected by the public authority against certain notification dated 14.04.2006; 2. photocopy of the verification report in full submitted by the concerned Board of the different states in respect of these selected candidates; and 3. by which mode the said verification report had been sent to all candidates.
The PIO, on 19.08.2010, furnished the required information to the Applicant in respect of item nos. 1 and 3 of the application. He, however, declined to disclose the verification report under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI­Act as according to him it was confidential in nature
and related to the 3rd­ party(s).
It is noted that the Respondents’ decision that disclosure of the verification report attracts exemption under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI­Act is not convincing because on the basis of this very document one receives appointment as a government entity. This document therefore, cannot be categorized as an exempt one under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI­ Act.
