The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is not obligated to disclose raw and scaled marks of civil services examinations under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, the Supreme Court has ruled.

How to File RTI in UPSC

The top court has refused to reconsider its ruling whereby it had earlier cited confidentiality and integrity of the UPSC exams to put the scores of India’s most prestigious exam outside the purview of the ‘right to know’.

The court dismissed a bunch of review petitions filed against the order in February and reaffirmed its judgment setting aside the Delhi High Court ruling and dismissing all the writ petitions filed by civil services aspirants seeking disclosure of marks under RTI.

In February, the apex court had noted that disclosure of marks could have severe negative impact on the evaluation process and not only the prestige but the very integrity of the system could be compromised.
