    Hello Rahul,
    The first para of your query is unclear to me. Can you elaborate?

  3. Thumbs up Re: Is there any judgement in favour of 3rd Party under 8 (1) (d)


    The matter is like this.

    There was an request by an applicant for some info from the CPIO. Which was with the authority an U/s 11 the CPIO asked permission from the 3rd party, to whether he can give the info to applicant. the 3rd party (comapny) refused. The CPIO passed an order against the 3rd party, an said that he will provide the info.

    The 3rd party filed an application against the order which was subsequently against the 3rd party and allowed the CPIO to provide the info to the applicant.

    Against this the 3rd party is planning to file an appeal before CIC.
    Grounds taken are u/s 8 (1) (d) & (J).

    So i want to know is there any judgement or decision of CIC or SIC in favour of the 3rd party or a company beign aggreived by the order of 1st appellate authority and CPIO for giving away any info which will affect then in regard to confidentiality, IPR, Trade secrets etc.

    Plz help me in this an also ask others if they have any idea for same.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Such matters depend on the overwhelming nature of the public interest or otherwise in respect of the information sought for. The very fact that the CPIO and the AA have decided against the objection of the third party gives me a clue on the importance of the public interest outweighing the private confidentiality claim of the third party in this matter.

    However you can try a search of the decisions at the cic website for specific citations, if any, in favour of the third party.

    Sir,

    That what my query was. I wanted any judgement where the information of 3rd party is objected by that party and CIC or SIC has held it valid.

    In the case i want to mention that both CPIO and AA has not recorded the Public interest satisfication.

    I have asked my organization regarding the copy of caste certificate attached by my colleague . my organisation refused to part it stating that it is 3rd party information.
    I want to know whether it is really a 3rd party information.

    The Caste cirtificate is not a confidential information. It is a public document. You have a right to see it. Just tell me what stand your company has taken i.e exemption U/s 8 under RTI ACT.
