    As a foreign national living aborad, is it possible for her to obtain information from a state agency/authority by post or email?


    I have a friend abroad who has asked me to clarify the RTI rules.
    As a foreign national living aborad, is it possible for her to obtain information from a state agency/authority by post or email? Is it an absolute requirement to have an address and contact point in India? or can she use her own overseas address?

    Can she send them the money as an overseas postal order or pay by cheque OR will they insist on an Indian postal order?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Inderjit, RTI Act 2005 is for indian citizens only,therefore all other queries put up by you become irrelevent.Solution is ,for you to ask information under RTI if issues are important. Good luck.

    inderjit,

    Does that "foreign citizen" hold a OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) or a PIO (Person of Indian Origin) Card ?

    If yes, he can apply for information under RTI.
