The public servant who prepared the false documents will definitely come under 167 but as regard other officer it has to been seen if he knew that document to be forged or not. if he was not aware no liability can be attributed to him .

yes, this Section 167 can be imposed by the court, if the Public Servant has prepared the false document using his official capacity but has not taken any benefits out of that falsely created document. If the other public servant has used that document to take benefits, knowing it to be a falsely created document, then they are liable under 463, 464 and 471 IPC. Who are and how you are concerned with this case?
