    Please wait for 5 more days (to account for postal delays). If you still do not get the information you sought, then file a first appeal for "deemed denial" of information.

    RTI Applications filed with public authorities under the Central Government have to be accompanied by the application fee. This is as per Rule 3 of the Central RTI Rules, gazetted on 31 July 2012: 3. Application Fee.—An application under sub-section (I) of Section 6 of the Act shall be accompanied by a fee of rupees ten and shall ordinarily not contain more than five hundred words, excluding annexures, containing address of the Central Public Information Officer and that of the applicant: Provided that no application shall be rejected only on the ground that it contains more than five hundred words.

    Can you please explain your doubt with more clarity ? Section 6 is all about filing a RTI application and the process to be followed. Section 3 simply states that all citizens have the "Right to Information".

    If you want to file a RTI application by email, then for public authorities under the Central Government, you can pay the Rs 10.00 application fee by providing e-IPO number. The system of e-IPO still DOES NOT work for public authorities under the State Government. Please read: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/122248-tutorial-purchase-e-ipo-payment-rti-fee.html Since you will have to give the reference number of e-IPO in your RTI application, 30 days will be counted from the date of receipt of email.

Go to google and then do as follows (please wait for a few seconds for proper loading): Let me google that for you (Basically you are using google search engine and the searching for a topic, specifically on www.rtiindia.org) =================== The other way is to use the search engine which is available on our portal itself. On the top right hand corner (at the end of the grey coloured band, you will find a search box. Just type in "time limit for PIO to reply" or something similar. and click on the "search" (magnifying glass) button. As you will see, the first method gives you more apt links. It will also make a difference if you put just time limit for PIO to reply (without the inverted commas) or "time limit for PIO to reply" (with inverted commas). Just try out couple of times and you will be able to refine your search phrase to get the correct links/threads. =============== For help and guidance to use this portal, please read the FAQ here: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/frequently-asked-questions.html

The order says comments of President Pranab Mukherjee on the issue should also be provided to activist Subhash Agrawal who had sought the information. The case related to publication of photographs of Dikshit on ..

    Teen activist wants government to protect whistleblowers The young information activist, Himadrish Suwan , has filed 100 RTIs so far Himadrish filed his first RTI when he was just 15 "I hail from Jharkhand, where the state of affairs has not been stable for past 15 years. This has really urged me to keep questioning and file RTIs." In the last three years, Delhi University student Himadrish Suwan, who is just 17 years old has filed over 100 RTI applications. A regular columnist on activism and information in many publications, Himadrish was recently awarded for his work ‘in areas of areas of media and information activism’, by the International Association of Educators for World Peace, a body affiliated to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), UNICEF, UNESCO and UNCED. The teenager, who is quite an inspiration in his own right, talks to iamin about his journey of activism. Excerpts: When and why did you first file an RTI? I filed my first RTI in 2012, when I was 15 years old. It was about lack of Linke Hofmann Busch (LHB) coaches, he specially designed anti-collision coaches, in the passenger compartments of Ranchi Rajdhani on the New Delhi-Ranchi route. All the other Rajdhanis had the new LHB coaches. The question I asked the Railway Ministry was who would be responsible in case there is a collision? The Former Railway Board Chairman, Vinay Mittal spoke to me and within two days the newspapers announced that new coaches for Ranchi Rajdhani will be made available for passengers. I also filed an RTI on how many times had Former-Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh spoke to the media from 2004-2013. I got a 6-page reply mentioning that the PM spoke to the media a total of 1,300 times. They even gave me details of the one-word reply given to the media on their questions. Did you face any kind of resistance while you filed the RTIs? Although, I have not filed very controversial RTIs, my mother still stopped me from filing them. The government does not provide protection to the whistle-blowers. The act, though has been introduced, it has not passed in the Parliament. In the previous year itself, the percentage of RTIs filed in 2013 has gone down from 13-20 percent to 12 percent. The government must provide protection to the whistle-blowers. Have your RTIs created any impact on your surroundings? I live in Paryavaran complex in Saket, it is near a road that connects to the IGNOU road. This particular area is faced with traffic snarls on daily basis. I asked the area officials that how will a fire brigade or ambulance pass through in case of an emergency? After the filing of application, proper barricades have been put in the area and a traffic cop is always there to regulate the traffic. Is there no age limit to file an RTI? No. There is a 10-year-old girl in Lucknow who filed an RTI asking – “Why is Mahatma Gandhi known as the Father of the nation?” So, anyone can file an RTI, and the responses are mostly prompt. What inspires the activist in you? I belong to Ranchi, Jharkhand, where the state of affairs has not been stable for past 15 years. This really urged me to keep questioning the government and file RTIs. Apart from being a student, what else do you do in your spare time? I write for many magazines. I have also done features for the Citizen Journalist show on CNN-IBN. I also write for Lawyer's Update (Journal of Supreme Court of India), Environment Tomorrow, The Global Times, Indian Exponent, Academia.edu and YouthKIAwaaz. I think it is much more satisfying than whiling away time on Facebook. Though, I am more active on Twitter. What career stream do you wish to pursue in future? After I graduate in Political Science Honours from Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, Delhi University, I want to pursue law to be a Judge.

    That is definitely not as per the RTI Rules. You have to pay only Rs 2.00 per photocopy. Employee charges are not to be paid by the RTI applicant. Immediately file a first appeal against this illegal demand of the PIO.

    In what format is the "original" record ? Is it in colour or B/W ? To which state does the public authority belong ? You have to look carefully at the relevant RTI Rules for additional fees. For example, the Central RTI Rules, gazetted on 31 July 2012, specify additional fees as: 4. Fees for providing information.—Fee for providing information under sub-section (4) of Section 4 and sub-sections (1) and (5),of Section 7 of the Act shall be charged at the following rates, namely :–(a) rupees two for each page in A-3 or smaller size paper; (b) actual cost or price of a photocopy in large size paper; (c) actual cost or price for samples or models; (d) rupees fity per diskette or floppy; (e) price fixed for a publication or rupees two per page of photocopy for extracts from the publication; (f) no fee for inspection of records for the first hour of inspection and a fee of rupees 5 for each subsequent hour or fraction thereof; and (g) so much of postal charge involved in supply of information that exceeds fifty rupees. So, technically, the PIO should give you coloured xerox copies on payment of "actual cost or price"

    There is no such clause in the RTI Act - regarding disclosure of information on a mater "under process or not approved". Denial of information has to be reasoned and that too as per any sub section of Sec 8 or Sec 9. Next time you are faced by such a situation, demand from the FAA or SIC to point out the relevant section of the Act, under which information is being denied.

    Under RTI Act 2005, the power to frame rules is only with the "appropriate government" (Sec 27) and the "competent authority" (defined in Sec 2e)(Sec 28). UPSC is neither the "appropriate"government, nor the "competent authority" and therefore has not power to frame any rules for RTI. In any case, the power to frame rules (please read initial part of Sec 27 & 28) is to "carry out the provisions of the act" and not to subvert the provisions of the Act. =========== The reason I was perturbed by this was because they have denied information even before anyone has asked for it !
