2. GA (CAB-II) Department U.O. Note No. GAD01-CAB0SOM(INST)/2/ 2021-
CAB-II, dated 17.08.2021  
O R D E R:  
In the U.O. Note 1st read above, the system of generating numbers from GOIR  
website has been dispensed with. It is the intention of the Government to follow a  
system of generating G.O. numbers and displaying Government Orders in a manner  
that fulfills the citizens' right to information while being in accordance with the A.P  
Secretariat Office Manual, A.P. Government Businesses Rules, Right to Information  
Act, Information Technology Act and other relevant legal requirements.  
2. Upon substantive deliberation and research based on best practices followed  
by various states of India and ministries and departments of Government of India it  
was found that the prior process followed was lacking in particulars since the orders  
being uploaded in GOIR online platform was neither physically nor digitally signed.  
Henceforth the official Gazette being a statutory document, the publishing of G.Os  
shall be done solely through A.P. e-Gazette website.  
3. Furthermore, it is the Governments endeavour to proactively comply with the  
mandate of the Right to Information Act, 2005. Section 4(2) of RTI Act, 2005 states  
that every public authority shall endeavour to take steps to provide as much  
information Suo-motu to the public at regular intervals through various means of  
communications, including internet. Section 4(3) states that every information shall  
be disseminated widely and in such form and manner which is easily accessible to  
the public. In pursuance of the same, AP e-Gazette will act as a single point repository  
of information that shall be regularly updated and can be widely accessed by the  
4. Orders pertaining solely to personal information which are not of public concern  
shall be exempted from publishing in AP e-Gazette and shall be directly  
communicated to concerned officials. This provision also conforms with Supreme  
Court’s judgment in Justice K. S. Puttaswamy v. Union of India affirming that the  
Constitution of India guarantees to each individual a fundamental Right to Privacy.  
Such orders shall remain available for requisitioning via the standard process laid  
down by the RTI Act, 2005. This is in accordance with the statutory regime contained  
in the RTI Act, 2005.  
5. Orders in the nature of minor expenditures and information that do not qualify  
as public interest shall be exempt from publishing in AP e-Gazette in order to  
streamline public access and retrieval of relevant orders, reduce superfluous  
information and ensure efficient categorization and management of orders online.  
Examples of few such orders may be those relating to reimbursement of medical  
expenses, medical leaves, cost of diesel, engine oil and other items in respect of  
single Government vehicles, ex-India leave, purchase of stationery items, availing of  
leave transfer concession, sanction of earned leaves, sanctions for payment of house  
rent and the likes thereof.  

6. Orders categorized as Top Secret, Secret and Confidential vide Andhra Pradesh 
Secretariat Office Manual shall not be uploaded and published via AP e-Gazette.  
7. In light of the above, the practice of uploading orders on goir.ap.gov.in stands  
replaced with publication of orders for dissemination solely through Andhra Pradesh  
e-Gazette (apegazette.cgg.gov.in). To ensure authenticated publishing, provision  
shall be made on the portal for registration of Nodal Officers of departments and for  
them to electronically forward the content with their Digital Signature Certificate  
(DSC). The content received from indenting departments shall be formatted and  
uploaded on portal by Commissioner of Printing. The administrative departments  
submitting the request for publishing the Gazette notification shall be solely  
responsible for submitting and circulating copies of Gazette notification wherever  
required by law or otherwise.  
8. It is further clarified that published gazette notification shall be uploaded on  
the website apegazette.cgg.gov.in without delay and the downloaded electronic  
version as well as the downloaded and printed version of these Gazette notifications  
are to be treated as electronic versions for all official purposes as per section 4 and  
section 8 of Information Technology Act, 2000. Orders of routine nature shall be  
published weekly on the AP e-Gazette website as part of Ordinary Gazette. Orders  
that are urgent in nature shall be published as required as part of Extraordinary
