Re: whether the Pio can refer back an application for obtaining information on the pretext that it has not been applied on prescribed form
In terms of Rule No. 3 of the HP state, "Any person seeking information under the Act shall make an application in Form ‘A’ to the Public Information Officer/Assistant Public Information Officer accompanied by fee prescribed in rule 5". Please let us know if you had applied on this prescribed format.
