    Depends.

    Accessing a third person/third party information is not permissible under the RTI Act. Personal information is exempt from disclosure under section 8 of RTI Act.

    However, If you are able to show any larger public interest involved that warrants disclosure of such information, this information may be disclosed under RTI Act. This would entirely depend on the nature of information you are seeking and its co-relation with larger public interest involved.
