    Hello skohari,
    Yes, it is possible to apply for information through email. But it depends on
    the Public Authority to whome you are approaching for Info since most of
    the Public Authorities in India do not have a valid and working email id.
    So this mode of application still remains unpractical.
    Can someone please post an example
    Reserve Bank of India is accepting application through email or fax.
    For more info go to Reserve Bank of India.

    Further, there is the problem of remitting the prescribed fees that should accompany the request for information as perSection 6(1) of theRTIAct. Acceptance by credit card is not yet in vogue.The other day our CIC was talking about a system of payment by SMS. But that is only a loud thinking.

    Col sahib, you are absolutely right. Its wishful thinking. In a reply given by DoP&T, New Delhi the AA has informed that there is "no such provision is feasible at present in view of existing regulation"

    RTI and correspondence with govt


    RTI and correspondence with govt
    as reported by MADHU AGRAWAL in Merinews

    RTI Act is uses to get information on action taken by government offices on correspondence initiated by the public within 30 days. All offices should have a record of communications received and action taken/or forwarded to other departments..

    RIGHT TO Information Act is a successful tool to reveal information on action taken by companies and departments of the government on correspondence made by members of public in a time-bound period of 30 days.

    Ever increasing workload on officers handling RTI petitions and on Central Information Commission can and should be reduced by making it mandatory for all departments and companies of the government to reply to letters received by them within 30 days, thereby, negating any need to use RTI Act so commonly.

    The system should be for automatic follow-up by those departments where some department forwards communication/s received from public in a time-bound period in line with RTI petitions. Thus, it will fix responsibility and distribute departmental work to government officials rather than accumulating heavy workload only in RTI sections of public-authorities. All government offices should then have a statistical data on communications received and subsequent action taken/or forwarded to other departments.

    National Informatics Centre should include the provision of automatic generation of acknowledgment number on letters emailed through websites of government departments and companies towards paperless e-governance with liability on government departments to act on communications received on websites in a time-bound period.

    That is the solution. Presently with lack of accountability, egovernance remain as a farse. Hardly any government department reply an email. If if is made obligatory on the National Informatics Centre to generate automatic acknowledgement the problem could be solved.
