This issue is given in Section 8(b) of the act viz., "Not withstanding anything contained in this Act. there shall be no obligation to give any cityzen, information which has been expressly forbidden to be published by any court of law or tribunal or the disclosure of which may constitute contempot of court". This aspect has been repeatedly clarified in various judgements of the SIC.

You provided a lot which is enough to present the case. Thanks a lot. You please suggest me whether I have to file appeal or it is better me ask the orders of court under which you refused to provide the information.

Please file a First Appeal stating ALL the three grounds for appeal as pointed out in post # 4 in this thread.

The PIO should know and learn how to give proper replies under the RTI Act.

This way you will be of benefit to others who apply to the same PIO for information.
