We consider matrices over a commutative ring and characterize the class of outer inverses for which Jacobi type identities can be extended. We obtain a necessary and sufficient condition for the existence of Rao-regular Drazin inverse in terms of sum of principal minors of Ak for some k. Also, we obtain determinantal formula for the Rao-regular Drazin inverse. Conjectures are formulated which give expressions for outer inverse and the conjectures are proved in some special cases.
