Re: Can PIO ask aplicant to appear before himself insted of giving required information to applicant under RTI act?
I guess the original topic of discussion here was whether the PIO can force personal appearance or not. I think the answer is NO. The PIO has to furnish the information in the form that it is requested in (ss 7(9)). Thus if the form requested does not cause deterioration of the record, then the PIO should have to make copies and post them. Thus he cant force attendance.
