Soon after reports of Acharyulu ordering disclosure of records pertaining to students passing out BA course in 1978 came in public domain, an order was issued for reallocation of work among the information commissioners.

“The revised reallocation of work will come into force with immediate effect. The deputy registrars concerned are directed to transfer all the pending case files (except in which notice(s) of hearing have already been issued) with them to the concerned registry as per the re-allocation of work under intimation to the Registrar,” the order, issued yesterday, said.

It said the reallocation has been done “by the Chief Information Commissioner.”
