New Delhi: The Central Information Commission (CIC) has directed the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) to disclose the names of IAS officers across the country against whom sanction of prosecution has been given in corruption cases since 2010.
Lucknow-based RTI activist Nutan Thakur sought details -- note sheets, letters and documents exchanged between the DoPT and different officers -- in criminal cases registered against IAS officers between 2010 and 2017.
The CIC denied her the information saying it was not in a position to order disclosure of relevant files and related documents under section 7(9) of the RTI Act.
