The Gujarat High Court has stayed Chief Information Commission's order which had required the Gujarat University to provide more details about Post Graduation Degree of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The interim order of stay was passed by division bench of the High Court comprising of Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice VM Pancholi, in a petition by Gujarat University. The court has also issued notices to Central Information Commissioner M Sridhar Acharyulu and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
The Gujarat University earlier had approached Single Bench of the High Court against the CIC order. As the Single bench refused to stay the order, it approached Division bench. Following are the grounds on which the University is challenging the CIC order
Live Law had reported about CIC order wherein it was observed “When a citizen holding the position of Chief Ministership wants to know the degree related information of the Prime Minister, it will be proper to disclose”.
