Seeking to know the legal validity of the decision of the college Principal
The appellant was posted as a peon in Vivekanand College. He was promoted as caretaker some time back but subsequently he was reverted to the rank of peon. When he took up the matter with the Principal of the College, the Principal told him that as he had filed a case in the Delhi High Court, his case for promotion as caretaker could not be considered. Later, he filed an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act with the University of Delhi seeking to know the legal validity of the view taken by the Principal in his case.
View of CIC
The Central Information Commission (CIC) observed that the University is not required to give any opinion regarding the legal validity of the decision of the Principal of Vivekanand College. The CIC however, directed the College administration to provide copies of the relevant file notings to the appellant.
