PIO has to follow Third party procedure as per laid down norms. But if he considers that there was no invasion on privacy of any individual, safety and it amounts to larger public interest, providing information is at his discretion. How ever, third party may file complaint against PIO to IC specifying the reasons as to how it is not in larger public interest and amounts to invasion on privacy. Even then IC can not do any thing, as providing information is discretion of PIO, and even IC can not question PIO discretion unless some malafide intentions are brought into picture.

The Commission noted that in Section 11 (1), it is cleared stated that “'submission of third party shall be kept in view while taking a decision about disclosure of information'. "Section 11 does not give a third party an unrestrained veto to refuse disclosing information. It only gives the third party an opportunity to voice its objections to disclosing information. The PIO will keep these in mind and denial of information can only be on the basis of exemption under Section 8 (1) of the RTI Act.
