Right to Inspect - 6/7 The Examiners / Co-ordinators / Scrutinisers / Head Examiners

By Kush Karla – Online RTI Writer, 23 December 2014

The Examiners / Co-ordinators / Scrutinisers / Head Examiners

The answer book usually contains not only the signature and code number of the examiner, but also the signatures and code number of the scrutinizer/coordinator/head examiner. The information as to the names or particulars of the examiners/co-ordinators/scrutinisers/ head examiners are, therefore, exempted from disclosure under Section 8(1)(g) of RTI Act, 2005 on the grounds that if such information is disclosed, it may endanger their physical safety.

Therefore, if the examinees are to be given access to evaluated answer-books either by permitting inspection or by granting certified copies, such access will have to be given only to that part of the answer-book which does not contain any information or signature of the examiners/co-ordinators/ scrutinisers/head examiners, exempted from disclosure under Section 8(1)(g) of RTI Act, 2005. Those portions of the answer-books which contain information regarding the examiners/co-ordinators/scrutinisers/head examiners or which may disclose their identity with reference to signature or initials, shall have to be removed, covered, or otherwise severed from the non-exempted part of the answer-books, under Section 10 of RTI Act, 2005.
