Service book of a government employee has to be maintained in each and every case
Ref: Does service book of government employees fall under RTI?
Service book of a government employee which has to be maintained in each and every case, is a govt property, not a private one. Had it been a private document, it should be in private individual’s custody. Why government officials are keeping private document with them? Hence, denial of supply of copy of service to applicant is wrong and attracts penal action as per section 20 of RTI Act, 2005 against the erring official.
