    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.

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

    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.

    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 !

    On this subject, I want to know if there are any RBI Rules, Regulations or guidelines regarding number of cheque books to be issued free to a savings account holder. My bank (PSU bank) says that they will ONLY provide a free cheque book containing 20 leaves for the first time a account is opened. After that every cheque book issues will be charged at Rs 2 per leaf. When the government is trying to reduce the cash transactions to the minimum, such a policy on cheques can have a negative impact. Can any banker/retired banker please throw a light on this ?

    People's Interest in seeking information from Public Sector Banks seems to be Waning The Right to Information Act (RTI Act) has entered the 10th year of implementation. A major study launched by RAAG-2 has shown that the transparency regime is shrinking due to neglect from the Governments, public authorities and the Information Commissions. Readers may access this report at: RaaG - CES RTI study 2011 - 13 This is a worrisome development especially because, less than 1% of the citizenry is using the RTI Act every year to demand transparency and accountability across the country. We did a rapid study of how RTI is trending in 20 public sector banks which are under the control of the Central Government. The findings are based on RTI statistics published in the Annual Reports of the Central Information Commission for the years 2012-13 and 2011-12. Comparable data for all 20 Banks is not available for earlier years. The data for 2013-14 is also not available as the CIC's Annual Report has not been released yet. Meanwhile our major findings of how RTI is trending in PSU Banks is given below (comparative table in in the attachment): Only three Banks, namely, Bank of Maharashtra, State Bank of India and Bank of India, in that order, witnessed a rise in the number of RTI applications received in 2012-13 as compared to 2011-12. Of these Bank of Maharashtra recorded the highest increase at a little more than 25%. In 17 Banks the number of requests has gone down appreciably in 2012-13 when compared with the numbers received during the previous year. The biggest decline in the number of RTI applications - more than 60% - was witnessed in UCO Bank. Union Bank of India, Central Bank of India and United Bank of India all witnessed more than 50% reduction in the number of RTI applications received in 2012-13 as compared to the figures of 2011-12. When juxtaposed with the number of branches of each Bank, the average number of RTI applications per Branch was the highest in Allahabad Bank, UCO Bank and Bank of Baroda at 2 per year in 2011-12. 50% of the Banks received an average of less than 1 RTI application per branch that year. This figure dwindled further in 2012-13 with no Bank receiving even 2 RTI applications per branch. However, the percentage of rejection of RTI applications witnessed a significant increase in 2012-13 as compared to the rate of rejection in 2011-12. The rejection rate more than doubled in Allahabad Bank, United Bank, UCO Bank and the Bank of Baroda in 2012-13. Corporation Bank which did not reject any RTI application in 2011-12, rejected more than a third of the RTI applications received in 2012-13. Rejection rates were lower in 2012-13 in the Bank of India, Indian Bank and Vijaya Bank as compared to the previous year. Interestingly, the size of the non-performing assets (NPAs) does not always correspond to the trend of RTI applications received or rejected by Banks. Despite having the largest volume of NPA at the end of March 2013, both State Bank of India (top NPA grosser amongst the 20 Banks) and Bank of India (3rd largest amongst the 20 Banks) witnessed a slight growth in the number of RTI applications received and a slight decline in the percentage of RTI applications rejected in 2012-13 as compared to 2011-12. However, Punjab National Bank (2nd largest NPA volume amongst the 20 Banks), Central Bank, Bank of Baroda, Union Bank of India and UCO Bank witnessed a very high rejection rate coupled with a big reduction in the number of RTI applications during the same period. Bank of Maharashtra with the smallest volume of NPAs witnessed a 25% increase in the number of RTI applications received in 2012-13 but only a little more than 2% increase in the percentage of rejection of RTI applications. Similar RTI data for 2013-14 has not been published by the CIC as its Annual Report is under compilation. We could not find the latest NPA figures for Banks as in March 2014 on the RBI website despite our best efforts. Nevertheless on the basis of available data for the last two years the overall trend is one of reduction in the number of RTI applications coming to public sector Banks. Fewer citizens are seeking information from these Banks through the RTI route. Despite the reduction in the number of requests, most of the Banks are rejecting more and more RTI applications than before. So by no stretch of imagination can it be said that the governance and the competitiveness of public sector Banks is constrained by the RTI Act as reported by the PJ Nayak Committee appointed by the Reserve Banks of India to look into the governance of boards of Banks in India (see report on the RBI website at: http://rbidocs.rbi.org.in/rdocs/PublicationReport/Pdfs/BCF090514FR.pdf)
