Dear Mr Ravi,
It is apparent from the case law that the bank details are not be provided as it is the personal information of the account holder. Hence, there should not be any doubt about it.
Has the RTI Applicant given any reasons to claim public interest? There are plethora of cases on the website in this regard too.
