  4. Re: RTI information



    If website is not accessible to every one then it cannot qualify for being displayed on website.
    If it is available and a common man can access without any restriction then, there is not need to give in letter form.

    1. Every website has a "disclaimer" on it.
    Most of them are very exhaustive and have been framed by good US
    Lawyers, because the WWW became popular in the US first.
    Other websites have simply copied them.
    Anyone can use a clause in the "disclaimer" to disown what is stated on
    the website.
    In case the issue is serious, it will be a good idea to read the complete
    disclaimer on the website.

    2. The Internet penetration and useage in India is still very low.

    3. Why don't you try to ask for a "certified" copy of the relevant page on
    the website, under RTI Act 2005 ?

    Yes, you can demand for information in printed format even if its on their website. Further, even if this information has been removed from the website, after your request, you can still demand that it be provided to me.

    Yes, the CPIO is duty bound to give it in letter form on payment of fees.
