[HumJanenge] Ten Years old DPC papers missing in Central Coalfields Ltd

Here is the better between Shri Mohd. Jahangir Khan V/s Central Coalfields Ltd.Distt. Bokaro where the applicant had asked for, amongst other information, details on the Departmental Promotion Committee. Initially the the CPIO informed the appellant that the DPC recommendations being confidential in nature, cannot be given to the appellant. Subsequently they claimed that they are not available.

IC Sushma Singh did not buy their story and has order the disclosure of the DPC papers. She has also directed them to trace for the missing papers and inform the applicant of the outcome.

Public Records Act were already in place. So the CPIO cannot claim that the DPC papers, which are more than 10 years old, are missing. Applicant could have pressed for records destruction registers besides other relevant documents.

I tried to visit their website, to know more about this Miniratna Company. However, their official website is down. Check link

Let us hope better sense prevails.
