List of officers working in sensitive posts who have exceeded the stipulated tenure of three years
The appellant filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Southern Railway seeking information about the officers working in sensitive posts in Chennai Division and who had exceeded the stipulated tenure of three years, thereby violating the directions given by Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), from their date of posting in the last seven years. The Public Information Officer (PIO) provided information to the applicant.
During the hearing before the Central Information Commission (CIC), the appellant pointed out that while furnishing the information, the PIO had withheld the name of one of the official deliberately. The PIO also submitted that FAA had covered up this omission by stating that the name was erroneously left out. The appellant wanted to know whether any other name has been left out erroneously in the same manner. He requested that he should be provided with an affidavit by the Public Authority confirming the fact that name of no other official has been left apart from those furnished to him.
View of CIC
The Commission directed the PIO to furnish an affidavit to the Commission with a copy to the appellant affirming his position that name of no other official holding a sensitive post and exceeding a tenure of 3 years has been left out.
