Of late defiance of orders of Information Commissioners has become rampant. The only remedy with the information seeker is to lodge a complaint with Chief Information Commissioner, who routinely issues another order for compliance that too after a delay ranging from 6 to 36 months depending upon efficiency and pendency of CIC/SIC. Commissions hardly invoke powers of Civil Court vested in it u/s 18.3 to ensure speedy compliance with its own orders.
Hence I suggest that if after two months of
How many times have you been asked to inspect the document when you have never requested? Ideally, if you have not applied for inspection of the document and the information requested is not voluminous, PIO should not ask the applicant to come for inspection of the document.

Kindly do not worry about the exemptions at the stage of filing a RTI application, as reasoned below:
As per section 7(1):
A PIO is supposed to either provide the information on payment of such fee as may be prescribed or reject the request for any of the reasons specified in sections 8 and 9
(Which means a PIO is supposed to either provide information or deny it under section 8 and 9).
As per section 19(5):
In any appeal proceedings, the onus to prove that a den
Guide to drafting a good RTI application
Drafting a good RTI application can be as easy as writing a simple leave letter. As long as the applicant knows the basics of the RTI Act 2005, drafting an application, requesting for information from any public authority, is little more than child’s play.
Your full name and address have to mentioned in the application. If you so wish, you can also mention your telephone number and email id, although this is optional.
The CIC (management) Regulations 2007 says that
"Before submitting an appeal or complaint to the Commission, the appellant or the complainant shall cause a copy of the appeal or complaint, as the case may be, to be served on the CPIO/PIO and the Appellate Authorities and shall submit a proof of such service to the Commission".
Is is mandatory for the appellant to send the copies of the appeal or complaint to the PIO and the AA before submitting the appeal to the CIC. and also does one have
I am upgrading and changing the server. This will cause downtime to varying degrees.
Unfortunately I could not inform prior to the task.
Kindly bear with me for some time till the upgrade is finished. Many of the features have been disabled and many are removed.
The full list would be online once the upgrade is finished.
Please post facts as grievance is different from RTI. If the matter is pending for hardcopy, a prudent information seeker, whose attention is only to get information, will post the hard copy by Regd post immediately for further process.
The query lacks clarity.
I got a blank ATM card to withdraw $5k daily for six months. I am so happy about this because i got the cloned atm card after i was scammed twice by fake hackers. I have used the card to withdraw $420k so far. Georg Bednorz Hackers is giving out the cards to help the poor and needy though it is illegal but it is something nice. Unlike other fake hackers, he is kind, honest and truthful. No one gets caught when using this card. you can get yours from Georg Bednorz Hackers today! Georg Bednorz is
Instances that involve disclosure of sensitive information, it may be rationale for the CPIO to ask for citizenship proof
Information Commissioner Divya Prakash Sinha held that seeking citizenship proof in case of demand of sensitive information is justified but seeking a signed copy of the application does not seem appropriate as the online portal does not mandate uploading of signatures.
Sinha was hearing the plea of an Odisha-based RTI applicant who had sought from the Army information regarding implementation of rules under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 in all defence establishments.
The Army did not provide any information to the applicant, the CIC noted. Akhand approached the Commission with a complaint that the central public information officer (CPIO) of the Army has demanded a signed copy of his online RTI application as well as identity proof before providing him the records.
“In this regard, it may be noted that as far as CPIO’s request for citizenship proof is concerned, the same is not questioned as Commission in its prior decision(s) has held the view that Armed Forces stand on a slightly different footing as there may be instances that involve disclosure of sensitive information, and for such reasons it may be rationale for the CPIO to ask for citizenship proof,” Sinha noted.
