  W.P.(C) 8046/2008
  
  UNION PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION ..... Petitioner
  Through Mr. Naresh Kaushik, Ms. Amita Kalkal and Ms. Manisha Badoni, Advocates.
  
versus

  I do not see any reason to interfere with the order passed by the Central
  Information Commissioner dated 29th October, 2008 directing the petitioner Union
  Public Service Commission to disclose the marks secured by selected physically
  handicapped candidates. There cannot be any palpable public interest in not
  supplying the said information. No internal procedure adopted by Union Public
  Service Commission would adversely affect by revealing the marks. The
  examination is held by the Union Public Service Commission and marks are also
  awarded by them in respect of written examination and interview. Third persons,
  
  
  i.e., the candidates have not provided any information, confidential or
  otherwise, to the Union Public Service Commission.
  The writ petition is dismissed.
