When members post a query, bare minimum details are required.  What is this "Commencement Certificate" and what is the context and the public authority that denied that information are fundamentals.

You can not get judgment/decision for each and every document.

Any information not exempted under Sec.8 (1) RTI Act is to be disclosed.

The burden of proof that those documents are personal in nature rests on PIO.   Mere quoting a section and denying information amounts to malafide and deliberate denial of information. 

It is the statutory obligation of PIO to justify as to how the mandatory documents filed before a Public authority amounts to personal information and what personal information is stated in those documents.

(The documents submitted must be an estimate, a blue print, certificate from Architect and all documents in larger public interest for safety of building and following laid down norms for getting sanctions)

Documents submitted for commencement of certificate can never be personal information as those are mandatory documents required as per procedure for obaining a legitimate commencement certificate.  The objective of RTI on Transparency and accountability is the issue involved.

Go for first appeal or second appeal as per the present status of denial.

(Do not think that by producing a CIC decision or judgment, PIO applies his mind.  After 12 years of enactment, if PIO is rejecting that information appears as strange, as it appears either he must be new, and is not in the habit of turning the page and learning the work or no one has applied for such documents for  commencement certificate  in these twelve years)

This is the 12th time it has happened with me,in FA information is provided. The PIO has personally requested for the ruling as in a SA the documents were treated as personal and the PIO has to follow sec 11 procedure every time.

Even if a ruling is there, as information was submitted by third party, PIOs generally follow third party disclosure so as to avoid unnecessary litigation with third party.
