    Yes, RTI allows all Indian citizens, whether resident or not, to ask questions under the Act. You will need to plan appropriately to make arrangements for the Rs.10 application fee that must be sent to the public authority with each RTI request. Best, -Murgie

    NRI - Indian passport holder not resident in India
    OCI - Overseas citizen of India
    PIO card Holder - Person of Indian Origin card holder

    All the above have the right to seek information under the RTI Act 2005.

    Besides the option Murgie gave, if you are resident abroad , you can also file your application with the PIO of the local Indian Embassy, Consulate, High Commission.

    The following thread and ALL the links given therein will be of interest to you:

    Also from the CIC website: CIC | PIO & AA of Indian Embassies

    you can get, for each desi consulate, the name of each PIO and AA for that consulate, besides the email-ID and fax #. Best,

    The PIO and AA link does not work

    It refers to the tab on the left panel with the same title, on the CIC page. Best, -Murgie

    Thanks for a prompt reply. After a bit of jiggery pockery at the CIC site, I also managed to find the same link.

    Clearly shows I am not alone in perferring nocturnal hours for working - certainly cooler.

    The CIC website does deserve more attention from all of us. For example, using the Search button to identify prior CIC rulings relating to a public authority or a given class of questions may help you write a better initial RTI request. So spend some time on it also. Best, -Murgie
