Rti in 498a false cases

Respected Lawyewrs and Others ,

I have sent an RTI application ti Income Tax Dept. to get the details of return filed by an individual , but now its over

a month I have not received the desired information.

Is there any restriction in RTI that one can't get the income tax details of other person.

Usually assesses details wont be disclosed by the IT dept., but if it is asked under RTI it is their duty to supply the detials.
