Help me: Incorrect response to RTI
What should i do if the information provided to me under RTI is not correct?
In my case, I had filed an RTI regarding the reason for delay in receiving our UGC PhD fellowhips, and the persons accountable for these delays in UGC. We generally receive our fellowhips after a delay of 10 -12 months.
In reply to our RTI, the UGC has not provided us with this information. Infact, they have absolved themselves of the delay by blaming our institute. But, the records available with our institute suggests that institute has submitted all the documents, and it is the UGC which is causing the delay to disburse the amount to the phd students.
so, what should we do to see that in RTI, the factual information is provided to us. Please let us know.

You will have to file the First Appeal with the UGC Appellate Authority. Alternatively you can also file a complain with the Central Information Commission, New Delhi. But filing the First Appeal would be better.

A close look at the noting on the file dealing with your earlier RTI Application i.e. No.1 as to who is at fault and what was the supervisors notings.
