Personal Info Not Serving Public Interest Can't Be Disclosed: Gujarat HC

Read Judgment

The judicial officer had sought information with regard to the transfer requests of other judicial officers and the High Court's internal communications on such requests. He had also sought information with respect to complaints and resolutions against a Judge.

The Public Information Officer denied the request. In an appeal filed before the appellate authority, the judicial officer (respondent no. 2) contended that information regarding certain items had not been provided. The Appellate authority while rejecting the appeal observed that since the information was personal in nature, could not be provided and certain other information was not clear.
