Information related to expenditure incurred for issuing the ID cards
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Government Boys Senior Secondary School, Delhi seeking details of provision for issuing identity cards (ID) to students and other related information. The Public Information Officer (PIO) informed the appellant that there is no provision for issuing identity cards to students.
During the hearing before the Central Information Commission (CIC), the appellant produced some identity cards of students which were signed by the Principal. The respondent submitted that these ID cards are bogus and have not been issued by the school. They further explained that the cards produced by the appellant have been prepared by someone outside the school and that no collection was made from students for issuance of ID cards.
View of CIC
The Commission directed the PIO to furnish an affidavit to the Commission with a copy to the appellant affirming the fact that the said school has never issued any ID card to any student and that the practice of issuing the ID cards does not exist in the school.
