Dear member,

You can file application seeking inspection in the beginning itself as RTI Application. Inspection is one form of providing information, and an applicant has a right to seek certified copies of those documents selected by him during inspection.

Please read blog on Inspection for more details.

Except RTI fee prescribed for application, and for obtaining certified copies at Rs.2/- per page, RTI Act never stipulated any fee .

      Can the General Diary of the police station where particulars of "All the details in r/o criminals arrested and entry of arrival/departure of all enrolled police officers on duty with nature of their duties, duty performed and places visited etc."   are maintained be inspected and photo copies sought from a particular police station under RTI?
      Is there any particular clause/section that needs to be quoted for inspection under RTI? Any format available for inspection under RTI?

Asking the question is not covered under definition of "Information" as provided u/s 2(f) of the RTI act. Therefore the Questions asked by me can not replied under RTI Act 2005.
      Further PIO says Nonetheless I may visit the office of S.O.(Civil Establishment-II) inspect the concerned file on any working day between 03:00 pm to 04:pm and identify the required papers/documents. Same shall be provided the photocopies of required documents after depositing the prescribed fee @ Rs.2/- per page.

      PIO reply after 55 Days and not trying to deemed and denies the information.
      May please advice further course of action, as I am not interested to visit the office.
