Grounds for appeal: SPIO has simply rejected information stating sec.8 1 (g) without justifying how providing the copy of patrol vehicles' log book can endanger the life or physical safety of any person or identity of the source of information or assistance given in confidence for the Police.  In absence of justification, a simple rejection of information stating exemption amounts to deliberate and malafide as per several CIC decisions.  Hence this first appeal seeking for justification of SPIO applying for such exemption, and expressing the opinion that the exemption applied by SPIO is not justified through any stretch of the imagination.

Prayer:  Appellant prays either for providing justification for applying such exemption or direct SPIO to provide the information free of cost as expeditiously as possible as a simple copy of logbook maintained as a public record cannot be treated as exempt.

Prasad Ji since no reply to my first appeal I have now filed Second Appeal.

But I have doubt is the maintainence of patrol vehicles, is something that is given in confidence to the police ? That is the registration number, insurance ..etc are exempt for being a government vehicle?

Registration number is mandatory.  Insurance is not.

As you have filed the second appeal, let Commission say it is confidential information not to be shared.

Providing information prior to such visit may be confidential.

But providing it after the trip becomes an entry in a register and must be provided.

Finally I received a couple of days back the entire copy of records sought. As Prasadji said registration certificate is available but insurance is not. Thank you.
