Would like to have your view on using RTI to get information for the below scenario:
I have been requesting the "Regional PF Commissoner, Maharashtra - Bandra" through e-mail since May 15, 2006 to update me on the status of my PF Transfer Request from Maharashtra to Karnataka PF A/c & is yet to respond. I have almost written him 8 e-mails, but everything went in vain.
Now, having lost my patience, I thougt of raising a complaint using RTI. Can you help me to know whether RTI could be used for this purpose.
Yes, You can use RTI to get the information. If the email you are writing to is an official email ID, you can ask through the same email after depositing the Rupees 10/- via i) Cash; ii) Demand Draft; iii) Bankers cheque; and iv) Indian Postal Order or the method prescribed the PIO and mentioning that in the email.
If email is not an option, you can submit the application along with the requisite fees to:
Central Public Information Officer
O/o Regional PF Commissioner, Maharashtra - Bandra
