RTI for IT Refund - a bit confusion

Recommended Posts

yesprasoon

I've filed ITR-1 online for AY 2009-10 in 2009. At that time my AO(Ward/Circle) was 'ITO Ward 32(2)/DEL/W/62/2'. In that I claimed a refund by providing bank details for transfer. I was in Hyderabad but my IT details were still located in Delhi.

After this my file got transferred to Hyderabad, and now my AO(Ward/Circle) is 'JCIT(P) R-12, HYD/APR/P/92/1'.

I have read about the RTI format but my questions are -

1) To whom my RTI would be addressed - Delhi (Where file was located that time), Hyderabad (Where file is located now) or Bangalore-CPC (Because I filed electronically)?
2) Whatever be the case, what is address I need to mention in RTI (based on details provided above)?
3) If I need to send RTI Delhi, can I do the same while staying in Hyderabad? If yes, how and from where?
4) I found that we can file RTI online (Lodge Your Complaint: Central Information Commission (CIC) Online) as well. I selected 'Ministry of Finance' in 'Union Ministry' and 'Department of Revenue' in 'Department'. What should I select in 'Organisation/Public Authority', based on above mentioned situation?

You can file RTI application with the ITO with whom your file is assessed at present. Under RTI, even if you address application to wrong CPIO, he is bound to attend it by sucking information from its location within the organisation. Hence do not worry. The link provided by you relates to only complaint/second appeal to Central Information Commission [which is the highest authority under RTI]. You have to submit RTI application [first stage of RTI] to IT Dept. Hence this link is not relevant at present. Send hard copies to IT Dept with postal order by speed post. For address etc please visit:

Thanks for your reply.

As suggested in the forum, I am sending communication by registered post first. I tried to locate the AO address, but couldn't succeed. Either link is broken or it is provided only with phone numbers. I need full address of 'JCIT(P) R-12, HYD/APR/P/92/1', where I can send registered post. Any link/help?

Thanks to both of you. I've sent normal letter/request (by regd. post) to expedite the process. Let's see what happens. After 15 days, I would file RTI.

I've received my refund. However, I did not send RTI. It was just a normal letter with RTI format, suggesting that RTI will follow. Thanks for all the help and can someone please move this thread to 'RTI success'?

Congratulations on your success with RTI.

Now that you have personal experience of the RTI power, please spread the RTI word amongst your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, etc.

RTI will be of great use to them also.

OUR SITE IS QUITE POPULAR AMONG PIOs/CPIOs. As soon as such grievance is uploaded, executives advise juniors to redress the grievance.

Let us admit a fact as fact and give credit where it is actually due.

There is transformation in Income Tax, EPF, UGC, AICTE and CBSE and there was drastic reduction in their RTI Application receipts as most of the information is either available in their website or they have opened on line grievance redressal with proper controls. They have reduced the burden to a large extent.

They cater a large no. Of persons & found that everyone is using RTI. So suo- motu disclosure is only way to reduce the avoidable burden. I perceive it AS SUCESS STORY OF RTI & referred in preamble to increase the suo- motu disclosures. Now every office has helpline, FAQs, grivance redressal mechanism etc.

We get such queries if there is a delay, and as far as I remember that last query on IT refund was in Jun, 2014, and there were never further queries. Let us not go for the past threads, re open it and unnecessarily discuss on issues not relevant.

Now every Public Authority has a Redressal mechanism for such grievances and that must be closed within 24 hours. When there is a better alternative without involving a rupee cost, filing RTI Application for IT refund has become extinct.

Focus on present issues, as and when members post a query and never, never continue discussions on old threads.

I am making this advice, as your post reaches 22 other members mails, when there is no substance or use in further discussions.

Also look as to how many views are made so far in the thread, as it gives priorities of members on each issue.
