The NAI in its reply send to Aishwarya has said that no specific documents on the information sought were available.

The AD said that NAI has a large number of public records related to Mahatma Gandhi.

“As per the guidelines laid down by the DOPT the duty of the CPIO is only to make available the records for consultation and not undertake any research on behalf of the application,” Ravichandran said.
