Guidelines on RTI :

What is an information:

Information means any material in any form, including records, documents, memos, e-mails, opinions, advices, press releases, circulars, orders, logbooks, contracts, reports, papers, samples, models, data material held in any electronic form and information relating to any private body which can be accessed by a public authority under any other law for the time being in force.

Right to Information  under the Act

A citizen has a right to seek such information from a pubic authority which is held by the public authority or which is held under its control. This right includes inspection of work, documents and records, taking notes, extracts or certified copies of documents or records, taking certified samples of material held by the public authority or held under the control of the public authority.

The public authority under the RTI Act is not supposed to create information or to interpret information or to solve the problems raised by the applicants; or to furnish replies to hypothetical questions.  Only such information can be had under the Act which already exists with the public authority.

  1. How to request for Information? 

A citizen who desires to obtain any information under the Act, should make an application to the Public Information Officer of the concerned public authority in writing in English or Hindi or in the official language of the area in which the application is made.The application should be precise and specific. He should make payment of application fee at the  time of submitting the application as prescribed in the Rules. The applicant can send the application by post or through electronic means or can deliver it personally in the office of the public authority.

The applicant should make application to the concerned public authority. It is advised that he should make all efforts to ascertain as to which is the public authority concerned with the information and should send application to the Public Information Officer of that Public A Authority.

The applicant should see to it that by way of one application he seeks information in respect of one subject only.

Fee for seeking information 

The applicant along with application should send the application fee to the Public Information Officer. In case of Government of India the prescribed application fee is Rs.10/- (Rupees Ten only) which can be paid through a demand draft or banker’s cheque or Indian Postal Order payable to the Public Authority. The payment of fee can also be made by way of cash to the Accounts Officer of the Public Authority against proper receipt. If application is made in the RTI Portal, then fee can be made in the portal itself.

The applicant may be required to pay further fee towards the cost of providing the information, details of which shall be intimated to the applicant by the Public Information Officer. The fee so demanded can be paid the same way as the application fee.

If the applicant belongs to Below Poverty Line (BPL) category, he is not required to pay any fee. However, he should submit a proof in support of his claim to belong to the BPL. The application not accompanied by the prescribed application fee or proof of the applicant belonging to BPL, as the case may be, shall not be a valid application under the Act.

Format of application 

There is no prescribed format of application for seeking information. The application can be made on plain paper. The application should however have the name and complete postal address of the applicant. Even in cases where the information is sought electronically the application should contain the name and postal address of the applicant.

Filing of Appeal

An applicant can file an appeal to the First Appellate Authority if the information sought is not supplied to him within the prescribed period of thirty days or 48 hours as the case may be or is not satisfied with the information furnished to him. Such an appeal should be filed within a period of thirty days from the date on which the limit of 30 days of supply of information is expired or from the date on which the information or decision of the Public Information Officer is received.

If the Appellate Authority fails to pass an order on the appeal within the prescribed period or if the Appellant is not satisfied with the order of the first Appellate Authority, he may prefer a second appeal with the Central Information Commission within ninety days from the date on which the decision should have been made by the First Appellate Authority or was actually received by the appellant.
