Re: How to draft First Appeal
I have attached a first appeal format valid for Maharashtra herewith.
In the form under point 5, please list out the queries filed in your RTI application e.g. a, b, c etc and in front of each query, note down whether information has been provided or not provided. (please go through the form for a better idea)
In the point Grounds of Appeal, please mention whatever is applicable e.g. the PIO has not provided or provided incomplete information, or misleading information etc within 30 days of the receipt of RTI application and hence the PIO is deemed to have refused the access to information under section 7(2) of the Act.(also mention any other grounds as may be applicable to the specifics of your case)
If you have any further queries or doubts please post your queries here and our members would be happy to help you further.
