Even before enactment of RTI Act, Banks are under statutory obligation to protect the secrecy of their customer's account and you can as individual can never get that information under RTI Act.

If you want that information in larger public interest, you can file such complaint before the relevant authority like Police, Income Tax, other tax authorities or court and can obtain that information from them if they got that information from that Bank as their public record.

I am sorry as I could not understand Govt Pass book, if you mean that a statement of account of concerned bank account maintained by a public authority, you can seek that information from the public authority.  In some states, even the land holdings of individuals are stated as passbooks.

If I understand it correctly you wish to seek information about a particular public authority's bank account which it maintains with a bank. 

If that is so, this information would be available at two places (1) with the said public authority and (2) with the bank where the said public authority maintains its bank account.

In which case, you should be able to get this information by filing a RTI application with the concerned public authority's PIO rather than file the RTI application with the bank with which the said public authority maintains its bank account.

Also read the following blog:

Kindly do not worry about whether you will get the information or not at the stage of filing a RTI application
