    There is no way except to get the RTI Rules of the High Court struck down as illegal and arbitrary.
    Till that happens, just stick to the existing RTI Rules and the prescribed application format / pre paid envelope.

    At the first place we should all thank Mr.Shrawan Pathak for his detailed guidelines on filing RTI applications/appeals wherein he has also given reference to some of the CIC decisions also which can be referred to in case of any doubt.
    Secondly most of the RI applications from the working officials of both state and centra and also pensioners are about their grievances 1.Reasons leading to his non promotion, service problems which will not be replied inspite of several representations.At one stage he has to ask as to what is "POSITION OF DISPOSAL OF MY REPRESENTATION AND KINDLY PROVIDE THE RELAVENT FILE NOTINGS".SOME OFFICIALS in public related departments like Electricity,Revenue,TELEPHONES etc., will be refusing to give clear details of our applications for our clarification and then we have to invoke RTI to find out since how long the official is working in this office, Are there any tenuers(in case of very long stays like 10 yrs or more ) for the said post etc., and this cannot be called his personal information since we are not asking what is his fathers name ,place, caste etc., which is PERSONAL.Thus though Act says it is not meant for redressal of grievances but in 90% of cases it is being used for that purpose only.

    Similar is the case as narrated by ganpat1956 (hope i remeber the user name correctly) about NRI able to get a refund by making an application under the RTI.

    Just a thought.........
    Respected Member, i am not agree with the conend that " Redressal of grievances is outside the purview of the RTI Act".There is a clear provision in section 19(8)(b) of the Act for redressal of grievances to the applicant. The commission is empowered to order for compensation or reimbursement as damages suffered by the applicant.The Gujarat Information Commission has ordered in sevaral cases to pay the applicant/appellant as redressal an ammount of Rs. 5000/-.
    In a case of Kishni Devi v Registrar of Co-oprative Societies it was held by Commission that, " the representative of appellant has failed to convince us that she has sufferd any loss or detriment meriting award of costs, since no information sought has been shown to have been withheld. The remedy for any complaint appellant may have, lies in a court of law.

    GRIEVANCE REDRESS IS BEYOND THE COMMISSION'S JURISDICTION vide CIC DECISION No.CIC/C/1/2006-CIC Ms MaduBadhri Vs DDA DELHI.You can see the decision in2006 decisions of CIC in the CIC site

    Sec19(8)9b) require the PA to compensate the complainant for the losse or detriment if any suffered and it did not specify redressal of grievances through RTI.It appears you have not clear about REDRESSAL OF GRIEVANCES ,take the case of an employee who did not get his PROMOTION ALONG WITH HIS BATCH MATES which is a GRIEVANCE and for this he should his applications/petition/complaint with the concerned officer and not to resort to RTI directly.After filing coimplaint and if there is NO RESPONSE THEN HE CAN INVOKE RTI TO FIND OUT THE POSITION OF DISPOSAL OR ASK FOR NOTE SHEETS OF FILES IN WHICH HIS CASE WAS DEALT.
