Zenyite-ü had sat for the NPSC exam for Post Graduate Teacher in 2008 and lodged a formal complaint when her mark sheet under viva voce showed ‘blank’. Dillirose also said Zenyite’s written and viva voce marks were entered in the tabulation list before the declaration of the final results but admitted that “the error was made at the time of issuing the marksheet” adding that this was clarified by Controller of examinations to the candidate in a letter dated June 2, 2008. In her complaint , Zenyite said the column for entering the viva voce marks in her marksheet was “blank” and that her viva voce marks were not included in her marksheet. Referring to the candidate’s appeal for disclosure of marks of the ten successful candidates under RTI Act, the NPSC secretary reiterate that mark sheets were issued only to the candidate adding it was a common practice in any educational or public institution. Therefore, the NPSC stand in this regard was to uphold the norms practiced in any institution, the Secretary said. Stating that though the NPSC was at liberty to prefer an appeal in any appropriate court against the decision of the Chief Information Commissioner, the Secretary said the information was disclosed to the complainant on February 4 with a copy endorsed to the State Information Commission “ to maintain certain level of transparency and to remove the doubts of the appellant.” Further, the Secretary NPSC said even after disclosure of the information, “there is no change in the Merit List maintained by the Commission” and that the appellant did not stand to benefit by the disclosure. The NPSC also said “it was highly unbecoming on the part of the concerned press” to carry the news item without consulting any officials of the commission. It may be pointed out that the news was based on the report of an authentic document and report restricted to the sequence of events therefore , none of the parties involved were contacted.
