    There is no set rule as enquired by you. But one should avoid these words like why, how etc. as shows authority. As a citizen one has a right to know but one cannot dictate. The questions can be asked without using these words also. There is no ban on using these words.

    Default Re: can the questions like WHY , HOW , are answered under RTI rules?


    Sir if One officer wants to avoid answering to certain questions which says "why was this done"? so they do say straight that "why" cannot be answered and then the person asking the question has to change the question - this is for sure.
    Secondly please tell me " if the officer do not want to answer certain question which says "how can you do this"? , so here please suggest me a way to avoid the answer ( how can the officer say that they do not want to give the answer - how can they save themselves from answering to this kind of question.... - here think from that officers point of view, as the officer in charge here is not involved but pressurised to give the answer) --- how can we tell the person that we don't want to answer this and change the statement then we will answer.........
    Sir here we have to help the officer.....
    I AM SAYING THIS ON THE BASIS OF THE GOA COURT VERDICT = writ petition no. 419 of 2007's decision in the case of Dr. Celsa Pinto V/S Goa State Information Commission. This came as a office memorandum sent by= Mr. K.G. Verma Director of Govt. of India (Ministry of Personnel, public grievances & pension, Deptt. of P&TRAINING, dated 1 june 2009.

    You write the question. I will change its pattern. This is to make you learn.

    It is immaterial as to how a RTI application is framed.
    Questions or something else does not matter.
    It does not matter whether there is a WHY, HOW etc.

    All the applicant (and the PIO) have to ensure that what is asked for is:

    "information" as defined in Sec 2(f)
    "record" as defined in Sec 2(i)
    and "right to information" as defined in Sec 2(j)

    (Read the RTI Act here: Right to Information Act 2005)

    This matter has been already debated in many threads on the forum.

    Default Re: can the questions like WHY , HOW , are answered under RTI rules?


    Sir this matter is related to certain fees imposed by the state govt. on the people, but there is no base for the fees as it cannot be answered, it is just a practice which is going since long time and no one said anything and now there is a new govt. officer and the question comes under RTI as how can you charge the fees when there is no ground for it, now the officer asked the head office but the head office says - you are the officer so you answer it.. ! Sir this is a strange situation and in this matter the officer wants to ask the person that the answer cannot be given somehow (that you please frame out with the example and the law or rules) and he can ask the question again to the head office so that they can answer it. Sir here we have to help the officer as he is new and unaware of the situation, next time the question will be directed to the head office and matter will be solved accordingly. Please help me .

    Frame questions like this:
    1. Kindly provide me a copy of the rules under which certain fees are being realized.

    2. Kindly also name the account where these fees are being deposited.

    3. Kindly state the figure of the amount realized during last one financial year.

    4. Please name the authority who pass an order to withdraw the fund for a particular purpose.

    In this way there is no need to use why and how etc.
