Disclose marks of candidates: Punjab CIC to PPSC

The Punjab Public Service Commission (PPSC), Patiala, cannot deny information under the Right to Information (RTI) Act about marks obtained by candidates in written examination as well as interview. State Chief Information Commissioner R I Singh on Monday said nothing in the administrative realm was personal or private, and those who choose to enter public affairs must learn to live by public scrutiny. He also said that an answer-sheet was not a private parchment supplied by a third party. "It is a public paper in the custody of a public authority, which is the PPSC in this case," he added.
He stated this while hearing the case of complainant Rakesh Kumar of Amritsar, who was unsuccessful in the exam conducted by the PPSC to fill the posts of deputy superintendents of police (DSP).
