    Your assessing officer of your ward/circle where you filed the IT return (for which the refund is due) is himself a PIO. You can address your RTI application directly to him.

    The payment by DD/BC/IPO can be made in favour of "Accounts Officer".

    Chapter II Section 6 Subsection 3 says -
    Where an application is made to a public authority requesting for an information,
    (i) which is held by another public authority; or
    (ii) the subject matter of which is more closely connected with the functions of another public authority,
    the public authority, to which such application is made, shall transfer the application or such part of it as may be appropriate to that other public authority and inform the applicant immediately about such transfer:
    Provided that the transfer of an application pursuant to this sub-section shall be made as soon as practicable but in no case later than five days from the date of receipt of the application.

    I am not an expert, but I feel it is better to file your RTI to the assessment officer with whom you filed your returns.

    I also feel it is better to first send a normal complaint (Regd. Post A/D) requesting the status of your refunds. Then after one month use RTI on top of this complaint.

    All the Best.

    You can contact thepublic relations officer of the IT department where you filed the income tax return.
    Also You have mentioned that you are paying extra tax eah year??? I wonder why??? Do consult a Chartered Accountant or a tax consultant before filling retunrs / paying advance tax??
