Thread: advise/ opinion under the RTI Act

  1. Re: advise/ opinion under the RTI Act


    I have already clarified that in my above post Manoj.

    However to site for the 3rd point, for example to fill the vacancy there is no file which mentions why is a particular official transferred. The file is put with vacancy and list of officials.

    Thus there may be decision, but no information, a file noting may contain his name, but without reason as to why 'him'. Thus obtaining a file noting may reveal his name in the note but not the recorded reason for his case.

    You are right

    Corrupt senior officers might not have liked the incumbent and decided to transfer him instead. The option available is to complain or use the legal avenues to prove the malafide intentions.

    Best wishes

    Manoj

    Re: advise/ opinion under the RTI Act


    Paul,

    Strictly speaking you cannot ask for Opinion or Advise/Advice under the RTI Act. The term "information" has been clearly defined in the Act.

    However, with some smart drafting of the application and appropriate "camouflaging", you can disguise your application to get answers.

    Please only do this, if absolutely essential. Otherwise everyone will start using the RTI act for purposes for which it was never enacted.
