Third Party passport details can be Disclosed!
Mr Ansari Masud A K vs The CPIO Ministry of External Affairs
Central Information Commission
About/from the judgment:
Third Party PASSPORT Details can be Disclosed!
The Commission holds that details of a passport are readily made available by any individual in a number of instances, example to travel agents, at airline counters, and whenever proof of residence for telephone connections etc. is required. For this reason, disclosure of details of a passport cannot be considered as causing unwarranted invasion of the privacy of an individual and, therefore, is not exempted from disclosure under Section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act.
