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.
I have seen in case of many applications that PIO sends the reply by general post which sometime takes months to reach us .
I have noticed that in few cases i have recieved the reply after 4 months of actual date of sending the application and by than the response becomes useless .
Whats the actual rule and process for the same???
