Appointment of two information commissioners illegal: HC

Gujarat high court on Thursday held appointment of two information commissioners - BG Panchasara and Shridevi Shukla as illegal.

The HC said that the appointment of both the persons were not legally valid. The HC reached to this conclusion after Praful Desai of NGO Jagate Raho questioned the consultation process adopted by the authorities in appointing Panchasara and Shukla on the post of information commissioner.

Desai raised the issue by citing the documents of their appointment that these persons were not in public life, or that they have got knowledge in a particular field or an experience in a particular field. This is a requirement for selection on this position.
