Yes, you can attend the hearing and represent your mother, as well as argue the matter on her behalf.

 

Just take a letter of authorisation from her with you.

There is no prescribed format, you can use simple one sentence request signed by your mother.

There is no specific reference to appellant authorizing another person as his authorized representative to attend the hearing before any appellate authority in the RTI Act 2005. There is also no need to be present before the appellate authority. But for the well argued case one should make an presence. However, the RTI Rules of Center and States provided for a procedure for appearance before the appellate authorities and the commissions, and even the notice of the hearing issued by the appellate authorities mentions that the appellant may present him personally or through an authorized representative. So a simple application nominating someone as his/her authorized representative duly singed by the appellant would suffice the purpose!!
