The Act has not barred filing of one application signed by two applicants.

PIO can deny information only as per Sec. 8 (1).

If the address is one and the same PIO may provide information on one letter adding two applicant's name in his response.

As additional precaution, applicants made as NB to treat the first applicant only as real applicant if he wants to deny information if PIO wants to reject application only on the basis of one application by two applicants.

The applicant should be fair and straight forward in his approach.  Some applicants purposefully add another name of Below poverty line applicant to get information free of cost or to get priority in hearing of second appeal basing on Senior citizen factor. .  It is left to PIO to decide fee, and to IC to decide priority in hearing appeal

Law does not bar two or more applicants from filing a joint RTI application, but please note that, when you take a non-standard approach, it may result in a delay and RTI appeals being argued on grounds other than the main grounds for which a RTI has been filed. It would be advisable to avoid such non-standard methods. By the way, both the applicants can individually file the same RTI application.

Yes that's true.Filing application by more than one will divert the purpose but one can do for his own taste and knowledge

These applications as learnt by me through one SPIO during informal chat at SIC are being filed by political agents against the opponents to harass, and they do not want to spend single rupee for getting RTI, and they include the name of a below poverty line as joint applicant to evade copyings fees which may be huge. (That PIO received more than 200 RTI in one month, and 30 appeals hearing has to take place in 3 days at SIC)
