HC issues notice to senior civil judge

Ahmedabad: The Gujarat high court on Monday issued notice to a senior civil judge who also works as a public information officer at Junagadh court in connection with an RTI application. The judge had refused Lallu Pratap, a candidate for the post of clerk, information regarding the three lists prepared by court authorities for recruitment of clerks. After denial of information, Pratap moved HC contending that judiciary has not been exempted under RTI Act, and the information he had been seeking can be revealed by the court under the RTI rules. The petitioner also demanded that there should be uniformity in rules of all high courts across the country.
