    The FAQ section has been replaced by the RTI Guide Section. Like the RTI Act, we are also evolving.

    Defeat is not final when you fall down. It is final when you refuse to get up.

    Abhishek,

    1. The Guide segment is available here:
    RTI Guide

    Or via the link available on the top right hand side of any page:
    * Home* Forum* Blogs* Groups* Guide* Directory

    2. Your 2 RTI Applications are on different subjects except the repetition of 2 points. So they should be treated independently by the PIO.

    3. First RTI: 3rd May, Reply due 3rd June, Last date for First Appeal 3rd July.
    Second RTI: 28 May, Reply due 28 June, Last date for First Appeal 28 July.

    Therefore, before you make your First Appeal for the First RTI, you should get the reply for the Second RTI.

    4. Each RTI application follows a separate and distinct process of Application - First Appeal - Second Appeal. However, CIC has the option of combining your 2 Second Appeals and hold one hearing. That is good for you too, since only one Second Appeal hearing.

    5. Your mothers case has raised a "sensitive" issue due to the claim that a previous application/passport existed in her name and that she has not disclosed that fact. Although she says , she has never applied for passport previously.

    Most probably, the matter will be settled before that.

    Just for further interest please visit CIC and search for "passport ghaziabad" and you will get all decisions of the CIC on that office. You can also search for "passport" and go through some of the CIC decisions. That will not only give you an idea as to how to draft Second Appeal, etc. but will also give you confidence about your case.

    The following thread will also be of interest to you:

    mr opsharma, karira & ganpat,

    thanks for being so concering.

    mr karira,

    had the application been filed previously also, then the question is why had they not processed the said application and issue her a passport to that application.

    as per law they can impose a max. penalty upto 1000/-, but i am not going to leave the matter unjudged.

    i would also like to bring the fact to ur notice, that while filing the applicaton, my mother went to their office with two applications; 1st fully filled up as per her knowledge and the 2nd partially filled up.

    the lady officer prefered to continue with the 2nd partially filled application and suggested her to take back the 1st application. and the application was filled as per her suggestions.

    Abhishek,

    As explained previously, your mothers case is "sensitive" for obvious reasons. Either they have made a blunder in informing you incorrectly the first and the second time OR they have really issued a passport to someone else.

    Maximum penalty leviable on the PIO is Rs 250.00 per day subject to a maximum of Rs 25,000.00. That too at the Second Appeal stage. Please see:

    http://www.rtiindia.org/guide/fundam...i-act-2005-14/

    Regarding the lady at the RPO Ghaziabad, please bring out this fact very clearly at the time of First Appeal. As per Sec 5(3), the PIO is supposed to provide all reasonable assistance to the RTI Applicant.

    Even if you get your mothers passport shortly, please do not give up the RTI process and carry it to its logical conclusion.

    mr karira,

    for penality i meant to say was, the passport office can impose a max. penalty of rs 1000/- on us against 'hiding of information' (that in a wrong way, as no information has been hidden)

    There is no question of imposing or paying penalty when you haven't done anything wrong !
