The appellant stated that he joined the service in 1981 and is on the verge if retirement. He claimed that he has not got even a single promotion during his entire service period, though he is eligible as per rulers. He sought certain documents claiming that due to non-availability of the said documents, the appellant could not get his senior grade and selection grade. The PIO stated that information sought by the appellant is not available. The CIC observed that unless proved that record was destroyed as per the prescribed rules of destruction/ retention policy, it is deemed that record continues to be held by public authority. The CIC pointed out that by practice, ‘missing file’ cannot be read into as exception in addition to exceptions prescribed by RTI Act as it amounts to breach of Public Records Act, 1993 The CIC directed the PIO, Mr. the Principal and the Asst. Registrar to show-cause why maximum penalty should not be imposed upon them for not providing the information to the appellant and why disciplinary action should not be recommended against them. Further, the public authority was directed to explain why compensation should not be paid to the appellant for harassing him by not providing the requisite information for a long time.
In many government offices, the quality of record keeping needs a massive overhaul. As per Public Records Act, 1993 action can be initiated for any loss of public records and is punishable with imprisonment up to a term of five years or with fine or both.
