Subject-CPIO
Date of action

Reply :- CBSE neither provides syllabus nor textbooks till class VIII

denied the sought information on the flimsy and cryptic grounds and in a mischievous way quite obvious from the communication of District Basic Education Officer to District Magistrate Mirzapur dated-12/04/2018. He must be subjected to scrutiny under section 20 of the Right to Information Act 2005 of India. As the matter is concerned with the large-scale commission on books sold by public schools and kindergartens either itself or through attached booksellers in the districts which are affiliated to CBSE Board. 

First appellate authority instead of applying own rational mind, only copied the irrational decision of CPIO so disciplinary proceedings may be initiated against him so that such practice of non-providing sought information to information seekers may be curbed.

With due respect and regard to Hon’ble Sir, the appellant invites the kind attention of the Hon’ble Sir to the following submissions as follows.

1-It is to be submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that your appellant sought the following information from the CPIO as follows.
According to CBSE, CCE should be implemented in classes VI, VII and VIII as well say CBSE, which many schools have adopted.
Please make available access to information, minutes of proceedings and the copy of communications exchanged in regard to the decision to remove the CCE pattern this year by CBSE. Also, make available new syllabus of CBSE for class 6 and class 7 caused large-scale change in textbooks this year and back years.
2-It is to be submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that CPIO denied the sought information as follows-

Reply :- CBSE neither provides syllabus nor textbooks till class VIII

3It is to be submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that CPIO made available the reply as follows-CBSE neither provides syllabus nor textbooks till class VIII. Think about the gravity of the situation that whether CPIO was asked, Does CBSE provides syllabus or Textbooks till class VIII? Here from the communication of B.S.A. Mirzapur addressed to District Magistrate Mirzapur letter number-337 dated-12/04/2018, it is quite obvious that this year CCE pattern has been removed which caused the books revised on the large scale so several books changed caused a heavy burden on guardians like me suffered a loss of more than Rs.3000.00. Here core issue is CCE pattern which is a reformatory step of CBSE Board and this year CBSE has withdrawn its stand of reformation i.e. CCE pattern. Sought information is concerned with the CCE pattern. Mr  Al Hilal Ahmed (Academic) cum CPIO, It seems that has occupied a key post in the CBSE board but he didn’t understand the contents of R.T.I. communique which is written in a lucid style and simplest way. This incompetency originates from the corruption and it is unfortunate that our system is under the stranglehold of corruption from top to bottom. Think about the gravity of the situation that the post filled up by an educationist is occupied by the people like him who couldn’t understand the contents of R.T.I. communique.
4-It is to be submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that supporting document submitted during the submission of the online R.T.I. Application same is attached to this second appeal of the appellant which is explicit in itself but it seems that the aforementioned CPIO never deemed fit to take the perusal of the attached document to R.T.I. Application. Think about the gravity of the situation that CPIO took such a long time to cryptically deny the simple information causing damage to millions of innocent and gullible people.     
  5-It is to be submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that First Appellate Authority replied as Reply:- Question-Answer does not fall under the ambit of RTI Act. However, no such information is maintained by CBSE.                  

Whether the appellant made the question to the CPIO in order to seek information if not, how sought information was withheld by the CPIO and why did not FAA take the perusal of the contents of the R.T.I. Application as well as seeking information before reaching his absurd conclusion. In view of the appellant, if the question is made in order to seek information instead of the redress of the grievance, then such information ought to be made available to the information seeker.

This is a humble request of your applicant to you Hon’ble Sir that how can it be justified to withhold public services arbitrarily and promote anarchy, lawlessness and chaos in an arbitrary manner by making the mockery of law of land? This is the need of the hour to take harsh steps against the wrongdoer in order to win the confidence of citizenry and strengthen the democratic values for healthy and prosperous democracy. For this, your applicant shall ever pray you, Hon’ble Sir.                                             Yours sincerely

Date-18-10-2018              Yogi M. P. Singh, Mobile number-7379105911, Mohalla- Surekapuram, Jabalpur Road, District-Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh, Pin code-231001.

O Dunkey where is the rule for question answer? Under R.T.I. Act 2005 you have to provide the information. If the information is available in question answer form then provide it to information seeker.
