Question

Chavada_Vijay

Hi,

I have completed M.Sc.(Chemistry) with first rank from Gujarat University in July, 2012. I will be awarded with INSPIRE fellowship from DST, Govt. of India perhaps in January, 2013. In many institutions like Indian Institute of Sciences, IITs, JNCASR, CSIR-Laboratories, & Universities from other states provide Direct Admission to PhD if student is awarded such fellowships. But, in Gujarat University this facilities are not provided. so I want to file an RTI to University to get the proper information regarding PhD admission schemes for INSPIRE-fellows. But I don't know where to apply & how. Someone please help me..

Universities are autonomous institutes, So they have designated PIO and FAA, better contact the Registrar of that University.

Thank you for your answer & I get some idea about RTI filing, but still I need much information about the last point in this thread.

*How will I get the required Information, i.e. Whether I will have to reach to them or they will contact me by themselves, or the information will be sent to my address?

*I don't have any idea about how the information i seek will reach to me & how, when & to whom I have to pay the additional fees (i.e. 2 rs per page, etc.)..

1 & 2 (of information required is as under) need to be reframed....

You are asking for opinion or advice of the PIO. This is not possible under RTI.

You can only ask for "information".

Read Sec 2(f), 2(i) and 2(j) of the RTI act: Right to Information Act 2005

Tricky situation - since what you actually require is "clarifications" and "reason for not including something" in the policy.

 

Since you are located in Gujarat, I suggest just ask for "inspection of the entire file or files related to ................"

 

When you inspect the relevant files and the file notings, you will understand as to why the University took that decision not to include some fellowships.

 

However, RTI will not be of any help in forcing any public authority to do (or not to do) something. It will only get you "information".

 

Maybe, after you get information, you could go to court or use some other method....but that will be too late for your January deadline.

There may not be department or section-wise PIOs.

 

Do not ask for questions or opinions or clarification as these are not information as defined in RTI Act.

 

Seek certified photocopies of record only relevant to your problem.
