There is no mention of these things in RTI Act.

1)like Restricting number of questions or applicants and if application is filed twice, they are enclosed with RTI fees, and PIO is pleased to provide copy and paste response. There are never any powers to PIO or appellate authorities to penalise any applicant as per provisions of RTI Act. If such is the case our PIOs never spare that opportunity.

2.PIO can only deny information with exemption and can not call any application frivolous. Though he is not supposed to but ignored by ICs without calling the remarks extraneous

3.There is no such provision in RTI for withdrawal of application and he may just submit an application that he is not interested in that information and PIO is too pleased to acknowledge and remain silent.


(if this query is from PIO, we are happy to note the tendency prevailing against such applications by such PIO)
