In India there is no law of privacy. Generally the CIC goes by the UK Privacy Data Protection Act and the US Law of Torts. Please see: https://www.rtiindia.org/forum/2738-c...y-u-s-8-j.html
Please also use the search function available at the top of this page and search for "privacy". You will get many useful threads which contain CIC citations in some posts.
3. Can you please clarify what do you mean by "confidential" ?
4. Regarding your other queries, 1,2 and 4 is allowed. 3 is doubtful.
In case you want information regarding item No.3, try to draft your RTI application carefully and chose the right words.
