RTI Act comes to engineer's rescue

The information obtained under the RTI Act has come to the rescue of an aspirant for an assistant engineer post in the STC. The land belonging to the family of P Kumaresan, a BE degree holder of Chinnasalem, was acquired by the government. Thereby he became entitled to be considered under the `priority category' for employment. The TNSTC, Salem, invited him for an interview on June 6, 1998. But he was not permitted to attend the interview on the ground that he did not possess first class in BE.

Senior advocate K Doraisamy argued that the very same contention was raised and the single judge rejected it. The Corporation was not able to produce any proof for the amendment. The information furnished under the RTI Act would clearly establish that there was no amendment and, consequently, the corporation could not insist upon first class in BE.
