Though it is not necessary to state the objective of seeking information, for that specific information that was qualified as in larger public interest, that larger public interest must be stated with more clarity.   Seeking total minutes for two years (specific dates not mentioned in application) may not appear as justified.

Grounds for Appeal:  SPIO has not provided exact such sub section in Sec. 8 (1) and provided justification for applying that exemption, and quoted CIC decision without application of mind to deny information.  SPIO is expected to quote section, sub section and justification for denial of such information .  Appellant submits that each and  Minutes of Board are not confidential and only some relating to strategy and critical information may qualify for exemption, and even in the case as TASMAC is a Public Sector Board having monopoly, there is no competition for their business in TN State.  Information of those minutes that are critical and confidential may be severed and copies recorded as  minutes may be provided, as meetings  are not regular and may take place at quarterly intervals.

PRAYER: Appellant prays for directions to SPIO for providing the information as expeditiously as possible for two separate financial years. 1-4-2017 to 31-12-2019
