Does anybody know whether under the RTI the income-tax details of another person can be obtained. I cannot find anything on the subject. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


under rti it is provided that "(g) information, the disclosure of which would endanger the life or physical safety of any person..." or (j) information which relates to personal information the disclosure of which has no relationship to any public activity or interest, or which would cause unwarranted invasion of the privacy of the individual unless the Central Public Information Officer or the State Public Information Officer or the appellate authority, as the case may be, is satisfied that the larger public interest justifies the disclosure of such information" need not be disclosed.

imho, income tax info can endanger life/physical safety etc and also is personal info as per clause j so it cannot be demanded.
