The point under discussion is pivoted around 3rd party information (what ever it may be), now what we have to consider is - Is an ACR a personal information of a 3rd Party ? for which the PIO need to invoke Section 11 of the RTI Act-2005. Now, unless the PIO and/or the Appellate Authority invokes Section 11 of the Act, the CIC would have no problem in allowing disclosure of information – am I correct on this understanding?
Another point is, if a decision of the Apex Court or an OM does not explicitly bar disclosure of ACRs to 3rd Parties, it cannot be assumed to be so. thnks
