I was always fascinated by RTI ,heard a lot about it just wanted to see how I could also use it,I'v not yet recieved my 2005-06 IT refund ,is it possible to find out the status of the same thru RTI ,if so what is the procedure for the same.
As far as i know, that site is for e-filing of returns. there is another site itax, which caters to various queries like PAN, TAN, e-TDS, OLTAS etc, but doesn't really adresses to the issue of refunds.
This site also holds information regarding location of various income tax offices (though i must confess my office at faridabad doesn't find a mention !!!) and of CPIO's. But the best option currently available is "AAYAKAR SAMPARK KENDRA", which is actually a pilot project of the department in collabration with a private agency running a call centre set up at Gurgaon. The contact number is 0124- 2438000.
Aashna, I am featuring this thread. You had posted really useful information. Also I have created a new Link segment, wherein we can submit all useful links. Visit here: http://www.rtiindia.org/links and find 'Government Utility links'
when i was posting the reply yesterday, i had typed the complete address. At one place, the address was automatically reduced to "itax" and in another place, it showed as ".....com: the leading.....". I dont know how, but u and mannesh would know better!
Anyhow, the readers may please read the second link also as itax. If u can moderate the reply, it'd be still better.
