Sir, Public documents obtained under the RTI Act 2005 & submitted in the court related to the defence of a case, may be treated as an evidence or these documents will be required to be proved by the CPIO (Central public information officer of that Govt office) calling him as a witness. Please advice the law position in this regard.

Documents obtained under RTI Act does not require re-authentication by CPIO. However, if court orders for presence of CPIO, then he may be summoned by court for deposition.
