Re: RIT application for Gen BC. jOSHI army public school
Ok. It is agreed that the AWES school in question is to be treated as a public authority. But with every additional post here, we are moving away from the main issue posed by Amrita Ganga.
The applicant having already initiated the process has not received any reply even after the 30+5 days period. The issue here is what should be the next step. Is it a complaint under Sec.18 as suggested by sidmis or should it be a first appeal under Sec 19 , which appears to be the favourite route of sngupta?
In as much as nobody knows if the AWES school has set up an RTI mechanism with a PIO & FAA in place, I think any attempt to locate a non-existent FAA to submit an appeal u/s 19 will be a wild goose chase. Under the circumstances, a complaint to CIC u/s 18 as suggested by sidmis appears to be a reasonable option.
Defeat is not final when you fall down. It is final when you refuse to get up.
