    4th February 2016
    A two Judge Bench of the Supreme Court Today observed that the request of the information seeker about the information of his answer sheets and details of the interview marks can be and should be provided to him by Public Service Commission under Right to Information Act. It is also observed that since there is a fiduciary relationship between the PSC and the Examiners, any information about the examiners is not liable to be disclosed.

    Partly allowing the Kerala High Court Judgment in Kerala Public Service Commission vs State Information Commission the Bench comprising of Justices M Y Eqbal and Arun Mishra held as follows; “….the PSC has taken upon itself in appointing the examiners to evaluate the answer papers and as such, the PSC and examiners stand in a principal-agent relationship. Here the PSC in the shoes of a Principal has entrusted the task of evaluating the answer papers to the Examiners. Consequently, Examiners in the position of agents are bound to evaluate the answer papers as per the instructions given by the PSC. As a result, a fiduciary relationship is established between the PSC and the Examiners. Therefore, any information shared between them is not liable to be disclosed. Furthermore, the information seeker has no role to play in this and we don’t see any logical reason as to how this will benefit him or the public at large”.

    According to Justice Eqbal, disclosure of the identity of Examiners is in the least interest of the general public and also any attempt to reveal the examiner’s identity will give rise to dire consequences. Revealing examiner’s identity will only lead to confusion and public unrest. ‘If we allow disclosing name of the examiners in every exam, the unsuccessful candidates may try to take revenge from the examiners for doing their job properly. This may, further, create a situation where the potential candidates in the next similar exam, especially in the same state or in the same level will try to contact the disclosed examiners for any potential gain by illegal means in the potential exam. The Commission has reposed trust on the examiners that they will check the exam papers with utmost care, honesty and impartially and, similarly, the Examiners have faith that they will not be facing any unfortunate consequences for doing their job properly’, He added Regarding the information relating to answer sheets and marks received in Interview the Bench held as follows; “In the present case the request of the information seeker about the information of his answer sheets and details of the interview marks can be and should be provided to him. It is not something which a public authority keeps it under a fiduciary capacity. Even disclosing the marks and the answer sheets to the candidates will ensure that the candidates have been given marks according to their performance in the exam. This practice will ensure a fair play in this competitive environment, where candidate puts his time in preparing for the competitive exams, but, the request of the information seeker about the details of the person who had examined/checked the paper cannot and shall not be provided to the information seeker as the relationship between the public authority i.e. Service Commission and the Examiners is totally within fiduciary relationship”.

  • జనరల్ అభ్యర్థులకు 32 ఏళ్ల నుంచి 30 ఏళ్లకు తగ్గింపు
    ♦ ఎప్పట్నుంచి వర్తింపజేస్తారన్న అంశంపై స్పష్టత లేమి
    సాక్షి, హైదరాబాద్: దేశంలోనే అత్యున్నతమైన సివిల్ సర్వీసెస్‌కు ప్రిపేర్ అయ్యే అభ్యర్థులకు చేదువార్త! ఇప్పటివరకు జనరల్ అభ్యర్థులకు ఉన్న 32 ఏళ్ల గరిష్ట వయోపరిమితిని కేంద్ర ప్రభుత్వం 30 ఏళ్లకు కుదించింది. ఈ మేరకు గురువారం upsc.govt.in వెబ్‌సైట్‌లో ఓవర్‌వ్యూ ఆఫ్ సివిల్ సర్వీసెస్ కేటగిరీ కింద వయోపరిమితి అంశంలో దీన్ని పొందుపరిచింది. అయితే ఈ కుదింపు ఎప్పట్నుంచి అమల్లోకి వస్తుందన్న విషయాన్ని అందులో తెలపలేదు. 2015 సివిల్ సర్వీసెస్ నోటిఫికేషన్‌లో అభ్యర్థుల గరిష్ట వయోపరిమితి (జనరల్)ను 32 ఏళ్లుగా పేర్కొంది.

    మరోవైపు 2016లో యూపీఎస్సీ నిర్వహించే పరీక్షల టైం టేబుల్‌లో.. వచ్చే ఏప్రిల్ 23న సివిల్స్ నోటిఫికేషన్ జారీ చేస్తామని యూపీఎస్సీ ప్రకటించింది. మే 20 వరకు దరఖాస్తులు స్వీకరించి ఆగస్టు 7న ప్రిలిమ్స్, డిసెంబర్ 3 నుంచి ఐదురోజుల పాటు మెయిన్ పరీక్షలు ఉంటాయని వివరించింది. అయితే ఈ వయోపరిమితి కుదింపు ఏప్రిల్ 23న జారీ కాబోయే సివిల్స్ నోటిఫికేషన్‌కు వర్తిస్తుందా లేదా అన్నది యూపీఎస్సీ తన వెబ్‌సైట్‌లో ఎక్కడా తెలపలేదు. దీంతో అభ్యర్థుల్లో తీవ్ర ఆందోళన వ్యక్తమవుతోంది. ఇప్పటికే కోచింగ్ సెంటర్‌లలో చేరి పరీక్షలకు సిద్ధమవుతున్నవారు తీవ్ర ఆవేదన లో పడ్డారు.
