You can ask the bank authorities to issue the copy of the loan documents through RTI. If you cannot get proper reply, appeal to the next higher authority of the said bank.

Don't go RTI way. The bank will take shelter of fiduciary elationship and will not provide you any information. Making a complaint with banking ombdusman may be a good alernative if you are loacated at the place where the office of ombdusman is situated. If it isa not so fie a complaint case against the bank officeials this will force the bank to come out with all documents and if really a frud is committed it will give you real relief.
