I am attaching format for RTI application.
Most of PIOs deny information by just quoting sub-sections of section 8.1 of RTI Act, without giving meaningful justification for arriving at that reason for denial. This is against letter and spirit of RTI Act. I attach decisions of CIC and court judgments, which can be quoted in first and second appeals

I attach some of extracts from judgements of Hon'ble High Courts and Supreme Court relating to accountability of public servants. After getting information under RTI, citizens need to pursue the matter administratively or legally to fix accountability of public servants who wronged the common citizens.
I have addressed attached letter dated 03-02-2014 for improving working of CIC.
My RTI queries have revealed that out of Rs.1.79 crore penalty imposed from 2005 to 16-12-2013 by CIC only Rs.1.09 crores are recovered so far. Nearly 39.10% are unrecovered and there is no effective follow-up for recovery. I am attaching details and my comments.
I had submitted RTI to CIC and have received replies on the above issue. These replies will be useful to members. I am attaching the same.

I have addressed attached letter to CIC. If other members concur with my suggestion, they may also follow-up, since in a democracy numbers matter-more the merrier.
I am attaching extract from Indian Evidence Act pertaining to public document. I hope it would be useful to our members.
