Facts

:

1. The appellant did not avail of the opportunity of personal hearing on
15.01.2009. The appeal is therefore examined on merit.

2. The appellant has asked for personal and official information relating to an
employee of the respondent. The CPIO has refused to furnish the information u/s

that it pertains to more than ten years old, which is not maintained as per the
record retention policy.

3. An information which is not maintained as per record retention schedule,
cannot be furnished. The appellant has neither responded to the notice for
hearing nor indicated as to how he is affected in the matter, it is therefore
presumed that he is no more interested to pursue the matter.
