Definetly the information/document received from a "Public Authority" u/s 6 of the RTI Act,2005 is admissible in evidence that can be exhibited.

Find out judgments/citations.

As per AP High Court Judgment, documents obtained under RTI are valid documentary evidence and treated as public record.  It all depends on circumstances.  Most important is that the record must be created by the authority during parts of their duties in the past.   Misinterpreting the facility, some public authorities with connivance and conspiracy started collecting some documents several years after from interested parties  nd providing it to unsuspecting citizens as their record to mislead applicants.  It is proper to thoroughly verify such origin of documents and confirm with supporting documents.

The person who has made an application under RTI and received the evidence has to be called as witness to confirm the validity of the documents before these can be Introduced as evidence.

I am afraid that it is not the case for Public records.

The documents obtained under RTI needs to proved and marked as prescribed.

An admitted document may or mayn't prove the matter.     It can always be challenged though issued under Right to Information Act or by any Court of Law.

I realise my above post is not to the point.     Such a document is admissible and can be marked as Exhibit.
