Personal information of govt employee of govt can not be disclosed under right to infomation Act

During the hearing the Respondent informed the Commission that  information cannot be provided
u/s8(1)(h)  to the Appellant since the DAR proceedings against Mr. Chakraborty are  ongoing. Be that
as it may, the Commission  while relying upon the decision pronounced by the Supreme Court of
India in SLP (Civil) no.27734 of 2012 (@CC 154781/2012) holds that the information sought by theAppellant are qualified to be personal information as defined in clause (j) of Section 8(1) of the RTI
Act and hence is not disclosable.
