  1. Multiple Copies of same information under RTI

    Good, however, it should hardly matter: If the PIO provides multiple certified photocopies, good, if he does not, just make as many multiple photocopies as you would like and get them certified as true copies from a Notary.
  2. Not giving proper information

    Please read: RTI Act offers three levels to obtain a required information.
  3. A RTI applicant has to just invoke life and liberty clause of section 7(1), if he deems fit. As per section 19(5) of the RTI Act, the onus is on a PIO who will have to prove that the denial of a RTI application under the provisions of life and clause was justified. So let the PIO justify as to how your (farmer hailstorm compensation) case does not fall under L & L clause of section 7(1).
  4. Multiple Copies of same information under RTI

    Why make such simple things look so complicated. Just get one certified copy from PIO, make four photocopies and get them certified from a Notary.
  5. RTI on long pending complaints

    You will need to file a first appeal on the following grounds: GROUNDS OF FIRST APPEAL: 1.

With respect to point no. 2, 3 and 4 of my RTI application, the PIO has stated that the requested information is confidential and hence cannot be disclosed; And with respect to point no. 5 of my RTI application the PIO has stated that TN prohibits providing of such information. With regard to the PIO's aforesaid contentions, the RTI appellant would humbly to submit for the kind consideration of the Hon'ble First Appellate Authority, as under: I would hereby like to draw the kind attention towards the provision of section 7(1) of the RTI Act, which provides that a PIO shall either provide the information on payment of such fee as may be prescribed or reject the request for any of the reasons specified in sections 8 and 9. The PIO has neither provided the requested information nor rejected my request for any of the reasons specified in section 8 and 9 of the Act. Thus, the PIO has disposed of my request for information against point no. 2,3 4 and 5 of my RTI application in violation of section 7(1) of the RTI Act. PRAYERS: 1. Kindly direct the PIO to provide the requested information. 2. Kindly direct the PIO to provide the requested information free of cost in accordance and in compliance with the provision of section 7(6) of the RTI Act.

  11. About our road construction

    You can write a point wise detailed complaint along with photographs, and mail it to the concerned Minister with a CC to the Chief Minister (please make the letter very brief and point-wise). Wait for say one month and then file a RTI application to seek information on the action taken on your complaint letter, enclose a copy of the complaint letter along with its postal track report or if you have personally submitted the complaint letter then enclose an acknowledged photocopy of the same.
  12. Depo and Lots Information RTI

    Grounds of First Appeal: 1. I humbly urge the Hon'ble First Appellate Authority for a conjoint reading of section 7(1) with section 7(3)(a) of the RTI Act, as reasoned below: (a) As per the provision of section 7(1), a PIO is supposed to either provide the requested information on the payment of prescribed fees or reject the request for information for any of the reasons specified in section 8 and 9 of the RTI Act. (b) As per the provision of section 7(3)(a), where a PIO decides to provide information, he is required to inform a RTI applicant the details of further fees representing the cost of providing the information as determined by him, together with the calculations made to arrive at the amount in accordance with fee prescribed. The PIO has not informed me the cost of information together with the calculations made to arrive at the amount. Thus, the PIO has disposed of my RTI application in violation of the provision of section 7(1) read with section 7(3)(a) of the RTI Act. Prayers: 1. Kindly direct the PIO to provide the information free of cost, in accordance with the provision of section 7(6) of the RTi Act. 2. Kindly direct the PIO to henceforth, dispose of a RTI application in accordance with the letter and spirit of section 7 titled "Disposal of Request".
  13. Garbage dump

  14. 2nd Appeal - with CIC

    If you want an hearing opportunity through video conferencing then, first track your already filed second appeal and get its diary / registration number, and then by giving its reference write a letter to CIC that you would like to attend the second appeal hearing proceedings by video conferencing. This would make sure that you get an hearing opportunity through video conferencing only. If you would like to go to Delhi and participate in the hearing proceedings then no need to write any letter.
  15. Same session me 2 course ,( M.com or NIOS D.EL.ED)

    If it is with respect to Mumbai University, yes you can pursue dual courses at the same time, if it is with respect to any other University, kindly google for keywords "XX University dual degree". Also you can call up the concerned University and politely seek help from the person who answers your call, or alternately personally visit the University and inquire. If the university is directly covered under RTI then you can also file a RTI application addressed to the Public Information Officer at the address of the concerned University. For Mumbai University, please refer to the following links: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/education/news/Itamp39s-official-Dual-degrees-in-university/articleshow/11230387.cms Mumbai University Circular UG 15 / 2012
