PIO should provide the documents instead of his comments on the issue
The appellant appeared in some test conducted by the SSC in course of which she had undergone a medical examination and had been declared unfit. She later filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the Staff Selection Commission (SSC) seeking to know the basis for declaring her unfit. The Public Information Officer (PIO) informed her that her height was less than the prescribed limit and she was not found fit although she had been medically examined twice.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) observed that it would have been better if the PIO had also forwarded the copy of the medical certificate concerning her height. The Commission directed the PIO to forward the copy of the medical certificate issued on both occasions, concerning her height to the appellant.
