Please post the exact query for meaningful guidance.  Please do not expect that you will receive guidance for denial as you have already fixed in your mind to deny the information.  Members can only guide you without any bias and if information has to be provided, members can never suggest for denying information.

Sir,

You are aware that unless the information is classified as Secret, nothing on record is a secret, and just by writing on the file either "Secret" or "confidential", the information can never be treated as such.

Under RTI, a PIO can deny information under Sec. 8 (1) clauses alone, relationships, nature of information may not play a role.

As a PIO just endorse that application and enclose the response of the concerned dept., as reply to applicant.

That is the procedure being followed in many public authorities and PIO is concerned with only endorsing application to concerned dept., head stating a time frame, and enclosing that response back to Applicant as information, making the copy to FAA.

PIO has to decide the maintainability of such application on receiving a response and this insulates PIO against all such remarks against him by FAA/IC
