Punjab SIC : Show answer-sheet under RTI
The State Information Commission of Punjab has directed Guru Nanak Dev University (GNDU) to allow a student to inspect his answersheet under the Right to Information (RTI) Act. The university had earlier rejected the request of the appellant stating that only an examinee could see his / her answer sheets within three weeks of declaration of the results. The fee claimed for inspection was Rs. 10,000. The Apex Court has ruled in the CBSE v. Bandhopadhyaya case that an applicant is entitled to see his answer-sheet.
