    Well, as per my reading, the RTI Act only mentions "Citizen" and "Person" as a applicant. If one reads the act in broad terms, any "entity" like a association, Public Limited Company, Pvt Ltd. Company, organisation can ask for information.
    Why don't you give a application on your letter head and see what happens. Should be a good case study.
    Alternatively, do like my company does, we have given applications in our MD's personal name...but the contact address , tel numbers, etc. are all of the office.

    There is a small article in today Economic Times referring to the following decision of the CIC:
    http://cic.gov.in/CIC-Orders/Decision_17052007_04.pdf
    The article says that Companies can also file applications under RTI Act.
    Can someone please clarify..

    Thank you karira for providing this important citation. This decision will open the doors to allow the corporate sector to reap the benefits under RTI. When that happens, simultaneously we should think of bringing the corporate sector also under the purview of RTI.
