Will RTI help students access answersheets..?

Will RTI help students access answersheets?
Anahita Mukherji I TNN

Mumbai: With both university and board exams round the corner, here's a question that's foremost on the minds of students across the country. Once the results are out, are boards and universities bound to show students their answer scripts under the Right to Information (RTI) Act? "Yes they can, but no they may not'' pretty much sums up the answer. TOI wades through a series of contradictory orders across the country in a bid to figure out what's going on. 

    In 2007, a full Bench of the Central Information Commission passed a combined order on cases regarding the disclosure of answer sheets for various exams, including CBSE and public exams for posts in the Lok Sabha and the railways. 

    On the one hand, the order talks of how the RTI Act aims to provide transparency, and that all bodies controlled or substantially financed by the government are under the purview of the Act. At no point does the order state that answersheets fall under Section 8 of the Act, which enlists grounds for denying information. But the order takes a dramatic U-turn when it comes to the CBSE board, and says that it has the right to deny students a view of their corrected answer sheets, as the CBSE conducts exams on a large scale, and such a disclosure would render the system unworkable. According to the order, the CBSE has an established system which is as foolproof as can be, and the board's own rules prohibit disclosure of answersheets. 

    But the Bench passed a contrary order for exams conducted by public authorities to fill vacant posts. For these exams, candidates can be shown their answer papers as a general rule, says the order, adding that each case will have to be viewed individually to ensure that the disclosure of exam papers doesn't render the system unworkable. 

    Shailesh Gandhi, an information commissioner with the Central Information Commission, had asked for a review of the order last year.
    An expert in the RTI Act, who wishes to remain anonymous, is critical of this judgment. "With regard to CBSE, the order is not based on any legal grounds and is unable to prove that answersheets fall under Section 8 of the Act, where disclosure can be denied. Instead, it says that disclosure will render the system unworkable. But this is not for the information commission to comment on. If the board can dig out individual answer papers for re-evaluation, why can't it send photocopies of these papers to the students?'' says the expert. 

    The good news is that the various state information commissions are not bound by the order passed by the central commission. In July 2008, Pune information commissioner Vijay Kuvalekar passed an order directing the Maharashtra state board of education to allow students an inspection of their SSC/HSC answer papers. The order was challenged by the state board in the high court, which stayed it.

    Meanwhile, a student of Kolkata's Presidency College was denied an inspection of his university answer sheets by the state public information commissioner. His low scores at the university exams hampered his selection at some of India's premier institutes for a PhD. The Calcutta high court overturned the order passed by the state information commissioner and directed Calcutta University to show the student his answer papers. The case is now pending in the SC.

The SIX keys to SUCCESS...

I want to share with you something that I came up ....

"The six keys to success".
1. Attitude
Bloom where you are planted. You have a choice to get back up after temporary set backs. Attitude is a small thing that makes a big difference!
2. Direction
If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there. Write your short term goals down on paper. I have discovered and continue to discover that putting your dreams and goals down on paper lock in or focus your belief that they can be achieved--even if you have to take a course correction in achieving your goals. Success comes in cans, failure comes in can'ts.
3. Values
Explore what is important to you. Maybe it is family, friends, your spirituality or working hard at any given task. I can assure you that your priorities will change as you grow older. Very important that you value yourself and treat yourself like the valuable gift from God that you are.
4. Interests
Birds of a feather flock together. This is to say that if you are hanging around winners or others with a "can do" mind-set, you'll likely adapt to this same kind of thinking. Remember--"SUCCESS LEAVES CLUES!
5. Commitment
Feelings may change, commitments do not. "Success is getting up one more time than you fall." I have often wanted to give up, and then I must think to myself about what the consequences of giving up will be. Generally, this is more than enough of a motivation to make us stick to the task at hand even if we don't feel like it. When the task is achieved, Whow!--IT FEELS GREAT!
6. Encouragement
Be an encourager and comforter to friends that are feeling discouraged. I promise that you will not regret this as you will be encouraged by one, if not many, when you are feeling down. Encouragement and love are contagious qualities that can change the minds of the most stubborn and "hard-to-get- along-with" people you know. I have seen it happen over and over again.

Najar milte hi sharm se jhuk jati hai najar
Jab nahi lagta dil unke bina
Ek baar phir unki taraf utth jati hai ye najar"
