Right to Information

Right to Information Act, 2005

KSCSTE is committed towards maintaining accountability and transparency, and making the Right to Information Act, 2005 effectively operational. We welcome queries under the Act and will try to provide answers through the concerned authorities. This section provides all the relevant details that an applicant will require regarding the Act. For better accessibility, it also includes the names and addresses of the key officers and employees.

There are different divisions and officers in this organization who exclusively carry out duties which are subject­-specific and comprehensive information about them known only to them. Since the present sole SPIO need not deal with all the subjects, it would not be possible to understand whether any related file exists than the one apparently submitted related to any particular query. Unlike stipulated in the act, despite the presence of various divisions, at present, only Administrative Officer is designated as the lone Public Information Officer. Section 5[1] of the Act, stipulates that every public authority shall designate “as many” officers as SPIOs, in all administrative units or offices under it as may be necessary to provide information to persons requesting for the information under the Act. Import of this provision is that ideally those officers who handle the issues or who possess the information sought may be designated.
In the preceding circumstances, following officials are designated as State Public Information officers in respect of various divisions of KSCSTE HO as per Section 5[1] of Right to Information Act, 2005.
