The CPIO responded and denied the disclosure of information u/s 8(1)(d) and (j) of the Act on the ground that some information sought was confidential in nature. Further, he informed that certain information relating to goals portion of ePMS are in the public domain and he should access them through ePMS portal. 3. The appellate authority ordered for disclosure of the DPC minutes indicating the names of persons recommended for promotion from Grade – D to E for the years 2002 to 2006.
