snkmoorthy,

 

It depends a lot on individual cases and the circumstances surrounding the particular case.

 

1. Medical records of a individual can be "personal" data

2. If there are grounds for medical negligence, then the data can be provided

if it will serve the larger "public interest"

3. The patient himself can be a "third party" and may be the PIO can decide to

invoke the "third party" clause

 

There are many decisions of the CIC concerning disclosure of medical records...some allowing, some not allowing, some only releasing part of the records. Please visit CIC and using the search function look for "medical records" or "medical reports" and you can then read many decisions which can be of use to you.

 

I am just highlighting two of them here:

http://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/Decision_13122006_17.pdf

 

Please also wait for some time, since other members might have different opinions or suggestions and it will be useful to consider all differing views before proceeding further.

      A RTI Application has been replied by an officer signing for PIO. To my understanding it is only the PIO who has to reply under his signature and name.
