We have applied for a new ration card on 28th April 2010 at Kandivali (W), Mumbai. Even after several visit to office and reminder to inspector, our application is not moving anywhere. I have registered a complaint on RTI - CIC online portal on 10 Jan 2011. The status of this complaint states "Signed Copy Awaited". Wanted to know if I have to submit any physical form or online application is enough. If I have to submit a form in hard copy, may I ask for the informaation regarding concerned officer and office address please? Thanks for all your help.

RTI is only for seeking "information" as defined in Sec 2(f) of the RTI Act.

Read the RTI Act here: Right to Information Act 2005


You cannot use the RTI Act to complain to CIC about the non receipt of your ration card.


That option you used is only for lodging Complaints to the CIC under Sec 18 of the RTI Act. It will not bring you any results.


If you have submitted written reminders to the Ration office, then you can file a RTI application with the PIO of the department, as described here: http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/blogs/jps50/69-any-thing-pending-govt.html


The details of the PIO are available here: http://maharashtra.gov.in/english/food/index.php


Your RTI Application has to be as per the RTI Rules and Fees for Maharashtra.

These are available in the Guide section of the Portal: RTI Guide


Please read the other articles in the Guide section as well as the links given in the FAQ here: RTI FAQ


These will be of help to you during the RTI process.

      I had filed 3 RTIs asking for DPR of Madurai Smart City projects. They have denied information saying it has Drawing, Elevation, Plan, Section, DPR, Estimate, Structural Drawing, Note File & Current File , Agreement, Bidder furnished bid document  and is more than 1000 pages and is voluminous information.
      However I have specifically asked for information in electronic form like CD. 
      They have also quoted a State Information Commission SA-11683/2016 dated 02.02.2017 order stating that information supplying which causes hurdles in day to day functioning of office is exempted.
