1. The email is a valid mode for making the First Appeal since the RTI does not mention any specific method of making the First Appeal (only electronic, only handwritten, only typed, etc...).
Just to make doubly sure, send a copy by Registered AD wherein you clearly mention at the top:
"original appeal sent vide email dated.....to......at the email id........... This is only a confirmation copy by mail"
2. The AA has 30 days to decide on your appeal and communicate to you. He can take an additional 15 days (total 30 + 15 = 45) provided he records the reasons for the extra 15 days in writing. Just give a few days more for postal delays etc. and then file Second Appeal.
The Second Appeal can be made within 90 days of receiving the information from the PIO.
3. For details of points for the second appeal etc., please refer to the post #7 in this thread.

Reason: spelling corrections
Have received an e-mail reply from the AA to the appeal I had mentioned in #10.
1. "Sorry. I am currently travelling abroad and this is my personal email. Pls file your appeal in my office."
2. "Would suggest that you file the appeal with the CCA of the ministry"
These are the two seperate mails I have received from the AA. Would like to mention that the e-mail id to which I had sent the mail is published against the name of the AA in Min of Health & Family Welfare's official web site.
Do I have enough grounds to go to the CIC to seek justice or should I send a printed appeal to the above AA or to the CCA of the ministry as suggested by the AA.
