In a telephonic conversation, a PTA official when asked for clarification on the PTA web cell’s operations in the absence of rules said information about how the PTA routes files and cases internally should not be a matter of public record. The PTA official refused to share any ad hoc procedures or criteria they use for implementation of clause 37(1) which pertains to removal or blocking of access to information.
