Modi DU degree-outer Information Commissioner now wants CBSE to make Smriti Irani's exam results public

Some may have thought the axe had fallen on Sridhar Acharyulu but it seems it has not.

Modi DU degree-outer Information Commissioner now wants CBSE to make Smriti Irani

Rejecting the CBSE's contention that exam results constitute "personal information", the Central Information Commission today directed it to allow inspection of Class 10 and 12 school records of Union Textiles Minister Smriti Irani.

Reports said the Holy Child Auxilium School, Delhi, from where she claimed to have studied, and Irani's office have been directed by the CIC to provide the minister's roll number or reference number to CBSE, Ajmer, which possesses records for 1991 and 1993 "to facilitate search from huge records which is yet to be digitized".


"The Commission directs the respondent authority, the CBSE, to facilitate inspection of relevant records and provide certified copies of documents selected by the appellant free of cost, except personal details in admit card and mark sheet, within 60 days from the date of receipt of this order," Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said in his order.
Acharyulu was recently moved from the HRD ministry by Chief Information Commission R.K. Mathur for his order of inspection of BA records of Delhi University pertaining to 1978, the year in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi is said to have passed out.




Mrs Irani declined to comment when asked about the developments.
