Don’t reveal interviewer’s identity under RTI: SC
Patna High Court had directed Bihar Public Service Commission to reveal the names and addresses of the members of the interview board which had cleared the names of candidate for job in Police Laboratory in Crime Investigation Department of Bihar.
The matter was brought to the Supreme Court which, after hearing the case, ruled that the names of the members of the interview board, set up to select candidates for government jobs, cannot be revealed under the Right to Information (RTI) Act.
The court contended that the disclosure of the names could endanger the lives of the interviewers. It also said that though marks are required to be disclosed, revealing the names of the members of the interview board does not serve any fruitful public purpose.
