Mr.Mukul Goyal had filled RTI via the newly launched portal http://rtionline.gov.in/, and received this information:

Table 1: Minimum Qualifying marks in Each section a.k.a. Sectional cutoffs

** English Language paper is of qualifying nature, hence the mark obtained in English Language is not considered for overall total weighted score. If a candidate is qualified in all sections of online examination as per TABLE – I and his overall total weighted score is equal to or more than the cut off given in the Table-II then he has been called for the interview.
Table 2: OVERALL CUT OFF FOR SHORTLISTING FOR INTERVIEW
|CATEGORY||TOTAL WEIGHTED SCORE IN ONLINE EXAMINATION|
TABLE-3: QUALIFYING MARKS IN INTERVIEW
TABLE-4: CUT OFF FOR FINAL SELECTION
|CATEGORY||TOTAL WIGHTED SCORE IN ONLINE EXAM + INTERVIEW MARKS|
As you’re aware, government launched a website http://rtionline.gov.in/ to make online RTI applications. So, I had filled this RTI myself, just out of curiosity to ‘test’ whether that website works or not. (and yes it works fine. By the way if you get ‘payment error‘ message after paying the fees via netbanking on that website, don’t worry, your R.T.I will be still registered.)
CAFP: 2010, 11 and 12
|Score of Last topper (Written + Interview)||Gen||SC||ST||OBC|
|2012 (out of 600)||278||249||237||270|
|Paper 1 (MCQ)||97||84||84||97|
|Paper 1+ Paper 2 (subject to 30% minimum qualifying marks in paper II=60 marks in Paper 2)||157||149||146||154|
^This information was also shared on UPSC’s website but putting it here for future reference, because they’ll remove it after some months.
Since I wanted to get maximum value out of my 10 rupees, application fees, I also asked a few additional questions in the R.T.I, as following:
Q. What was the Highest marks scored in Paper I, II and in final list by each category?
Lord Curzon: Such information is neither compiled nor maintained by the commission and hence cannot be provided.
Mrunal: then how do you make the merit list, if you don’t know the highest marks? You’re indeed totally awesome.
Side note to readers: From Navdeep Singh Suhag (Rank 4)’s interview, we know that he scored
Written total: 238
That means, first ranker’s final score was atleast higher than 355.
Anyways, back to our R.T.I questions:
Q. How many female candidates applied in CAPF (AC) 2012 and How many of them are selected in the final merit list of CAPF (AC) 2012?
Lord Curzon: Commission doesn’t maintain male female category wise number of application. (However) the number of female candidates who have finally qualified in the CAPF(AC)2012 is 10.
Q.How many candidates from each category applied in the CAPF(AC) 2013 Exam?
Lord Curzon: The CAPF(AC) exam 2013 will be held on 20.10.2013 and no data on applied candidates category wise has been compiled yet and as such the same cannot be provided.
Mrunal: But last date to apply is already over, meaning you’ve the data and this is a simple task of excel juggling.
