Please be aware that the PIO's decision is not the final word in a given matter and that as a RTI Applicant you have an access to three tier hierarchical system by way of first and then second appeal under the RTI Act, as described below:


> RTI Application u/s. 6(1) with the PIO,


> Not received the information / not satisfied with information supplied by PIO / no decision by PIO,


> File a First Appeal u/s. 19(1) with the concerned First Appellate Authority (FAA),


> Still not received the information / not satisfied with decision of FAA / no decision by FAA


> File a Second Appeal u/s. 19(3) with the concerned Information Commission.


> Also please note that RTI Act also provides for filing a Complaint under section 18 with the concerned Information Commission.
