View of CIC
The Appellant stated that he wants to know the reasons, on account of which the said individual has been allowed to remain in one place for last several years and has not been transferred to some other office of the public authority. The Commission directed the PIO to provide an attested copy of complete service record of Shri ishwar Singh after excising from it the personal details (such as, nomination, deduction, loan details, income tax returns etc.) of the third party that are exempt under Section 8(1) of the Act. Besides, the PIO was directed to provide to the Appellant the reasons (in the form of file noting, notification, office order etc.) for allowing the said employee to serve in one place for last several years. In case, the reasons are not available in material form, the PIO should formally communicate this fact to the Appellant.
