    The definition is not provided in RTI Act. Whether or not a person is an affected person is a question of fact.

    I think U are refering to 'third party' in RTI i.e. person who is not applicant nor PIO of appln. U may peruse http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/blogs/...r-rti-act.html

    aggrieved person and affected person. Is there any difference between the two?

    In this case of 4.1.d, it would be a person who has been directly affected by the decision of PA and mostly he would be the applicant

    An information falling under the RTI Act can be sought by any cityzen of India, so long as it does not fall under the excemptions and third party information. But information falling under the ambit of Section 4(1)(d) can be sought ONLY by the affected persons. Hope it is clear.

    dear sir,thanks,

    I UNDERSTAND THAT INFO ON REASONS FOR ACTIONS CAN ONLY BE SOUGHT BY AFFECTED PERSON UNDER 41D . OTHERS CITIZENS CAN SEEK INFO ONLY AND NO REASONS.

    WOULD THIS BE A CORRECT UNDERSTANDING?
