    CENTRAL INFORMATION COMMISSION
    …..
    F. No.CIC/AT/A/2006/00295
    Dated, the 31st January, 2007
    Appellant : Shri Jugvir Inder Singh, Legal Concept Defence Team, C/o Rajendra
    Singh Estate, C/o Madam Laure Cadier, Sector B-1, Flat 1050A, Vasant
    Kunj, New Delhi-110 070.
    Respondents : Brig S.C. Nair, DDG(PI) & CPIO, Addl. Dte. General of Public Info., B-

    The Director General (DC&W) and Appellate Authority, B-30, South
    Block, Directorate General of Military Intelligence, Army Headquarters,
    DHQ, PO New Delhi-110 011.
    This is an appeal filed by Shri Jugvir Inder Singh against the order dated 6.7.2006 of the
    CPIO, Col S. Thapar, Director (Media), Directorate General of Military Intelligence, Army
    Headquarters, Ministry of Defence.
    2. It is seen from the submissions made by the appellant that he had sought a range of
    information pertaining mostly to the military operations during the 1947-48 conflict in Kashmir and
    the role played by the appellant’s father late Brig. Rajendra Singh. The appellant has asked for
    ‘all records’ of Field Marshal Cariappa and of General Thimayya; ‘all’ maps of the required subject
    area; ‘all’ documents of General Srinagesh at that time; ‘all’ documents “alleged in the Rajendra
    Singh’s letter……” and those connected with ‘Operation Snipe’; “all” the requests for enquiry and
    requests for Gurais Medals of Honour by Brig Rajendra Singh “during any time in the Armed
    Forces”; the reasons from “any person…… that denies the medals of Honour”, the history of Vij
    Galli Hut, among others. The appellant has gone on to claim relief by way of award of Padma
    Bhushan to late Lt.Col. Rajendra Singh as well as a Maha Param Vir Chakra and, an addendum
    to be attached to the history of ‘Jammu & Kashmir Operation book’ produced by the Ministry of
    Defence, to acknowledge the contribution of Lt. Col. Rajendra Singh, besides a formal apology
    from the President of India to the family of Lt.Col. Rajendra Singh and so on.
    3. The AA, in his comments to the Commission, has stated that the queries of the appellant are
    basically questions about the veracity of the historical records pertaining to the 1947-48 Conflict,
    specially the role played by late Brig. Rajendra Singh.
    The appellant has demanded that historical records be amended and honours / awards be
    bestowed upon late Brig. Rajendra Singh. The AA has concluded that the RTI Act is not the forum
    for amending history or awarding honours or medals.
