No Information Disclosed by MoD, DRDO, what to do

How can I frame my RTI application in order to get my personalized information I want to seek, since DRDO (Defense Research and Development Organization) doesn't provide information even on the ground of application based on allegations of corruption in their recruitment process, I want to get a copy of my skill test (practical paper) under the recruitment process by CEPTAM-8, DRDO, MoD. What is the best way to get a copy of my paper ?

Dear friend,

First of all it is to be understood that RTI is meant only to obtain information available in records of the Public Authority.
It is not a forum for any grievance resolution, for which other avenues in the Deptt. concerned should be in place.

So under RTI you can seek to know marks obtained by you in the tests. Marks of other candidates or copies of your answer sheets can not be sought under the RTI Act as per the current judicial view as also held by the Honable Supreme Court.

For any allegation of corruption or any malpractice you may take up the matter with the department concerned.

I trust this clarifies the position.
With best wishes,
Luv Kumar
