    Re: Presence of another person while inspecting document


    If a applicant is really interested in taking "someone" with him for inspection, he can mention it in the application itself:

    I, alongwith with my associate would like to inspect the documents...........

    OR

    Please give me a suitable time and date for inspecting the documents.....alongwith my associate.

    Since you remind us on the "absence of any specific provision in the act"..... can you point out any specific provision in the act, about "any third person". Note, I am not talking about "third party", but about "third person" which you have mentioned in your own post.

    My dear friend, this act has been brought out for the citizens of under. Check Section 3. So anybody who comes along with the citizen, also happens to be a citizen of the country. We have already discussed this point, earlier in this thread.

    Of course, the PIO can raise the point in debarring advocates from attending the inspection. The PIO can also ask for identify cards from those who seek to inspect the documents. The PIO will have to allow only citizens, but can stop the others.

    Best wishes

    I just could not visualise any problem. If the PIO turns difficult, the "other person" including "Advocate" also can file an application for inspection of the same files. How will the PIO prevent this ? The maximum he can do is to allow inspection one by one. This is immaterial.

    What difference does it make if he takes someone else or not ?
    He can get the photocopies, bring them out and show it to his friend, lawyer, CA, etc.
