Addressing the issue of suspension from school using RTI
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) seeking information relating to suspension of his son. The RTI application was transferred by Regional Office, to Principal, Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV). The Principal, KV, responded to the application.
During the hearing before the Central Information Commission (CIC), the appellant submitted that his son had been suspended from the school for some period and then reinstated. He wanted a copy of the complaint on the basis of which his son had been suspended. The PIO submitted that the student was suspended for indiscipline and the incident had taken place before his joining the school.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) directed the Principal/ PIO to provide a response to the appellant.
The CIC has preferred not to take a decision regarding disclosure but merely directed the PIO to ‘respond’.
