Thread: using of letter head

  1. using of letter head


    dear all,

    recently i asked information on the letter head of a simity but the same was denied on the following grounds:

    not a natural citizen ;

    letter head cannot be used.

    However, i came to know that cic in its judgement has permitted the companies to seek information by using letter head.

    let me know, whether i can appeal by using the recent judgement.

    also please provide me the judgement.

    .
    May I ask you the name of the PA and the PIO if possible. I would rate this PIO as a difficult person. When there are no prescribed formats for application etc. he has no business in tell you to that letter heads cannot be used. As long as the letter head contains your contact details, phone number etc. and you sign the application in your own name, it legit.

    Further Section 6(2) clearsly states that "An applicant makin request for information shall not be required to give any reason for requesting the information or any other personal details except those that may be necessary for contacting him."

    If possible, let me have the address of this PA, I will file multiple RTI Applications seeking information like copy of rules which state Letter heads cannot be used etc.

    Thanks Karira,

    Your hardwork in this regard is excellent. However, I am now more specifically writing my question as "Whether an Secretary of Employees Sahkari Simity, can seek information under RTI Act by asking information on letter head of said Simity"

    Karira has already replied to your query. However, I would still like to know the name of the Public Authority that dared to say that Letter Heads are not allowed under RTI Act.

    Kindly give me the name of the PA along with the PIO details etc. Would like to file an RTI Application with them on my own letter head right away.

    The CIC in two of the recent decision has denied the information as the complainant has sought the information on behalf of the organization, of which he is a secretary, stating that the information seeker is not covered Under Section 3 of the Act.
