UPSC told to reveal cut-off marks

New Delhi, April 17
The Delhi High Court today directed the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) to make public the cut-off marks obtained by candidates in preliminary test of the Civil Services examination.

“Disclosure of information as directed by Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) cannot harm the interest of the UPSC and any third party. The approach of the CIC in this matter has been in correct perspective,” Justice B.D. Ahmed said while upholding the order of the CIC, which had directed the commission to reveal the marks.

The court also rejected the contention of the government body that the scaling system followed by it was very confidential and it was their intellectual property which could not be revealed.

“For scaling system nothing further needs to be done as in my view the same already stands disclosed by the UPSC in the affidavit filed by it in the Supreme Court,” the court said after going through various affidavits filed by it in the apex court.

Justice Ahmed, before whom the commission had placed its method of scaling system in a sealed envelope, found that there was nothing special in it and the same system was followed all over the world. — PTI
