Have you expected when filing such application that BSNL officers rush in to provide the information as it is just a click of a key ?

Go for first appeal stating the same as you are aware of that third party information requisites and already raised the same plea 

Search in our blogs of JP Shah as to what was information under fiduciary capacity as per SC/HC judgments as that issue is no more res integra.

Also file a separate application to Telcom or DOPT asking as to whether Government is treated as a person under law.

I am afraid as to what can be done with call data to prove corruption and at the most one can establish a nexus and not more than that.

Instead of provide some concrete evidence and file complaint to ACB as a whistle blower.
