Dear Sir/Madam, I am Syed khaja from Osmanabad Maharashtra. this is the response of PIO. in this response he is saying that "the record has been frozen/destroyed." So what should I have to do? kindly please help me in this regards.
I do not have practical experience of using RTI.
When officials send a response to an RTI query, are they supposed to follow a numbering system, or does any such system exist in actual practice, that could indicate whether the response is a denial or whether it is a memo about forwarding the query to another office or whether it is providing the information requested by the applicant? If such a system is followed, the numbering could further indicate the RTI sections under which the denial or forwarding has been done.
If no such system exists, could such a system be proposed? It could help not just the applicants but the apex RTI bodies and the watchdogs too.
