Gujarat HC says PMO need not furnish degree certificates of PM Modi

On Friday, The Gujarat High Court declared that the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) is not required to provide the degree and post-graduate degree certificates of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, overturning the decision of the Chief Information Commission (CIC).

Justice Biren Vaishnav’s one-judge panel overturned the CIC’s directive to the PMO, Gujarat University, and Delhi University to provide information about PM Modi’s undergraduate and graduate degrees. The Gujarat University’s appeal, which contested the CIC ruling, was being heard by the bench.

The High Court also imposed costs of Rs 25,000 on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal who had sought details of the certificate of the Prime Minister’s degree.
