Re: RTI transferred from head office to local office.
File a first appeal before the concerned First Appellate Authority on the following ground:
Grounds of First Appeal:
As per section 7(3)(b) a RTI applicant has a right to review the decision as to form of access provided and therefore even if a RTI applicant has initially not asked for inspection of information in his RTI application, he can do so at a later stage by invoking section 7(3)(b) of the RTI Act. Please find the provision of section 7(3) quoted below for your immediate reference:
Section 7(3) Where a decision is taken to provide the information on payment of any further fee representing the cost of providing the information, the Central Public Information Officer or State Public Information Officer, as the case may be, shall send an intimation to the person making the request, givingó
(a) the details of further fees representing the cost of providing the information as determined by him, together with the calculations made to arrive at the amount in accordance with fee prescribed under sub-section (1), requesting him to deposit that fees, and the period intervening between the despatch of the said intimation and payment of fees shall be excluded for the purpose of calculating the period of thirty days referred to in that sub-section;
(b) information concerning his or her right with respect to review the decision as to the amount of fees charged or the form of access provided, including the particulars of the appellate authority, time limit, process and any other forms.
