    Thumbs up Is RTI application must on a proforma ?


    I have recently asked for some information from the Department of Biotechnology, Govt of India.

    Afterwards I discovered that they have a form where I need to give my father's name and mother's name and proof of citizenship.

    Why I need to give my office telephone number if I am asking a simple information to the DBT?

    It is more than 20 days now and I do not know whether they will refuse to provide the requested information because I did not follow their prescribed proforma.

    Any comments from the experts here on this forum?

    Thanks in advance!

    Post demerged from another thread and started new thread.

    An RTI application has to only contain ones address for contacting the applicant to provide information. There is no need to ask for all those details.

    Please read this thread 9and all the links given) in full: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/4523-r...#axzz2CjT2ZJFZ

    The PIO has 30 days (from date of receipt of application) to provide you the information. Add another few days for postal delays. Please read:

    Aha! I received some answers by telephone on my RTI query after 37 days!

    Our own govt goes extraordinary lengths to prevent release of insensitive information to the public.

    The PIO is required to decide the RTI Application in terms of Sec 7(1) read with sec 7(3) of the Act. You may please file First Appeal before the First Appellate Authority immediately.

    "answers by telephone" - that is a new one for me also !
    Did you ask for some "verbal" information ?
    Accept everything in writing only - no verbal communications under RTI.

    I just wanted to know why our proposal was rejected.

    As I am not supposed to ask why, I just asked for the copies of the report and the final minutes.

    In anticipation, I added Rs 20 stamps on the Rs 10 IPO to cover photocopy charges. Otherwise, they will simply say that send Rs 18 by a DD before we can give you copies of documents!

    The result is the telephone call today (clearly mentioning my RTI application).

    I have already complained to the FAA (non-receipt of the RTI response).

    I have never received a clear reply for a simple question. So, I have decided to always ask for copies of documents.

    And this is from our own government- senior official.

    The PIO must either supply the information sought for or deny it for any of the grounds under Sec-8(1). Since the PIO did not do so, there is a deemed denial in terms of Sec-7(2) of the Act. File First Appeal immediately.
