Right To Information (RTI) Act
The Right to Information Act, 2005 came into force on 21st June, 2005 and its provision extend to all Public Authorities in the whole of India except the state of Jammu & Kashmir. The Meghalaya Public Service Commission being a public authority came under the purview of the Act. It may be seen that the Constitutional responsibilities entrusted upon Public Service Commissions are of such a nature that certain aspects of its work are necessary to be protected by the law/principle of “Non Disclosure”. In accordance with this principle the following items of records are never disclosed and treated as confidential records (Section 8 (1) (e) and 8 (1) (j) of the RTI Act, 2005.)
- Identity of Question Setters and Examiners.
- Evaluated Answer Scripts.
- Marks scored in the Written/Viva Voce Test, when not requested by a candidate to whom the records relate.
- Proceeding of Personal Interview.
- Such other kinds of informations which in the opinion of the Commission are likely to undermine its functioning and render the system unworkable.
