Disclose ACRs and Overall profile to retired officer : Central Info Commission

The CIC had earlier in many decisions held that ACRs need not be disclosed to RTI Applicants.

However, in a major and important decision, it has been held by the CIC in an appeal by a retired Colonel, that such information can be disemminated to retired officers since "the only effect of such disclosure could be to either confirm or rectify a promotion made in the case of an error or oversight and, therefore, at best lead to readjustment of pension benefits to applicant."

The entire decision (Col Goswami Vs Directorate of Military Intelligence) is available here on the CIC website
