    Please help me I want to file a RTI but not able to as I have the above doubts.

    Thanking You,

    • Sudhakar says:

      You can go to the website of the department or office from where you need the information. There would normally be a link giving the name of the public information officer. Address your application to the public info officer attach a rupee 10/- postal older and point wise ask for information that you need. The PIO would inform you about the money that you have to pay for the information. You pay that and get ur information. If the name of the PIO is not available write to the head of the organisation with the postal orders. You can give the application to the the designated post offices also. You would get the receipt and the application would reach that addressee PIO without any postal charges.
