RTI Act allows public access to Government employee’s service book: CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) has held that a public authority was obligated under Section 4(1) (b) of the RTI Act to disclose information related to the service of its employees. The CIC has directed the Railways to make available a copy of the service book of a Ticket Examiner (TE) to RTI activist Chetan Kothari, saying it was information that needed to be placed in the public domain. Kothari’s request for the service book and the confidential report had been rejected by the Railways which quoted section 8 (1) (J) for not providing them.
