gir 5999, the telephone standing in the name of your tenant is his property and you are a third party as far that telephone is concerned. hence, the stand taken by the telephone department is correct according to Sec 8(1)(j) of RTI act. however, if you can clarify what kind of details you want regarding your tenant's telephone, we may be able to provide better guidance.
What kind of information you are seeking? If you are seeking Call Details etc., then those information are off-limits to you.
But you can seek any other information apart from above since the phone lines are given on your property.
So instead of seeking information on the Tenant's Telephone No., you can seek information from BSNL about the Telephone lines supplied by BSNL on your property. Then you will be first party and BSNL should provide you some of the information.
I dont think you can get the xerox copy of the application and the documents attached to that. It may fall under the exemptions provided under Sec 8(1)(e) as well as Sec 8(1)(J). If any portion of the application and attachments thereto do not fall under the exemptions, they may be severed and provided to you under Sec 10 of the Act.
