You can go for first appeal on the following grounds to FAA.

Grounds for Appeal: As per Sec. 7 (1) "reject the request for any of the reasons in Sec.8 and 9' alone.  Further CPIO is as per Apex court decisions should state such clause with justification for applying that exemption clause.  When there is no such exemption in Sec.8 or Sec.9, CPIO for his own reasons invented a clause "subjudice".  Even in several judgments/decisions this issue was clarified that when a Court specifically prohibits such information, then only it becomes justified.  Hence this first appeal for CPIOs unlawful and malafide rejection deliberately, after several clarifications. on this issue in 16 years of RTI Act.

Sec.8 (1) (b) sates: Information which has been expressly forbidden to published by any court of law or tribunal or disclose of which may constitute contempt of court.

CPIO has neither stated the reference in which any court expressly forbidden or justification as to how providing of information available in physical form as a record constitutes by contempt of court.  The word "subjudice" was not stated in Sec. 8 (1) (3) as interpreted by learned CPIO of a GOI Ministry.


PRAYER: Appellant prays for directions to CPIO for providing the information as expeditiously as possible free of cost and a special direction may be given to CPIO not to deny information by the exemption clauses invented by him and to deny information such exemptions as stated in Sec.8 (1) with justification and if possible with citations.  If the court has stated not to disclose any information on the subject, CPIO may enclose such court order copy.  CPIO may be provided with a reference book that explains the only sec 7 relevant to him or he may be sent to suitable training as such denials are a disgrace to GOI of Ministry, after 16 years RTI enactment.
