Answer Sheets_Madras High Court Judgement
Judgement dated 13-09-2010 of Madurai Bench of Hon'ble Madras High Court in the matter of disclosure of answer sheets of university exams. Para Nos 7 and 8 are important for RTI which read as under:"7.with reference to non furnishing the copies of answer sheets, the conduct of the University cannot be appreciated and without driven the parties to approach this court, the University ought not to have given copies.8.When a question arose whether such an information is in public domain and the persons are entitled to know the marks obtained in the answer sheets, this court vide its judgment in The Tamil Nadu Dr. Ambedkar Law University, rep.By its Registrar Vs. The Tamil Nadu State Information Commission and others reported in 2010 (1) CWC 816 has held that even under the provisions of the Right To Information Act, a third party is entitled to get such an information."In my humble views, there is typographical error in para 7. Last sentence should be as under: "the University ought to have given copies." [not is deleted here]Courtesy_Also read the FULL Judgment at: http://judis.nic.in/chennai/qrydisp.asp?tfnm=57128
