Army Selection Board Proceedings disclosable : Central Information Commission

The Central Information Commission (CIC), in an important decision has held that while ACRs of Army Officers are not disclosable under the RTI Act, the same cannot be said about Selection Board proceedings. The Chief Information Commissioner on 06th June 2008, while dealing with an appeal filed by Brig Deepak Grover, has directed the MoD/Army to disclose full information relating to the Selection Board as was sought by the serving officer. The CIC has also not agreed with the govt that disclosure of such information would be detrimental to national security or would result in revealing the ‘organization of battle’.

The following is the link to the complete order :-
