Re: Exam key
If you are not satisfied with the response provided by the PIO, then you need to file a first appeal against the PIO's decision with the concerned First Appellate Authority under section 19(1) of the RTI Act, with your grounds of first appeal as follows:
Grounds of First Appeal:
1. As per section 7(1) of the RTI Act, a PIO is supposed to either provide the requested information on payment of such fee as may be prescribed or reject the request for any of the reasons specified in sections 8 and 9.
The PIO has neither provided the requested information, nor specified the relevant & applicable provisions of section 8 & 9 of the RTI Act under which the information has been declined.
Hence, the PIO has disposed of the RTI application in violation of the provision of section 7(1) of the RTI Act.
2. Similarly .....
1. Kindly direct the PIO to dispose of the said RTI application in accordance with the provision of section 7(1) of the RTI Act.
2. Kindly direct the PIO to justify in compliance with the section 19(5) of the RTI Act, the denial of the requested information without specifying the provisions of section 8 & 9 of the RTI Act.
3. Similarly .....
