@gangadharappa :


Any citizen who desire information available in the form of physical material on record with custody of public authority has to seek information from Public Information of that Public Authority .

1.Search website and find the format of application.

2.Learn the prescribed RTI fee and mode of remitting the same to Public authority (Rs.10.-)

3.Send application  with fees that Public Information Officer in Registered post.  Paste that postal receipt to your copy of application.

4.Track delivery status of your envelope to PIO (optional)

5.If you fail to receive the information within 35 days from date of posting of your application, or if you are not satisfied with that public information you can go for First  appeal to higher official to PIO designated as  First Appellate Authority.

6.Download RTI Act available for free in any website preferably in your mother tongue and get one A4 copy with sec.2,5,6,8,9,10, 17,18,19 and 20 , at one section each day.  Within 10 days you can become a master and can guide others.

      As reported by Neha Shukla of TNN in timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 3 August 2008:
      SIC to introduce new regulations-Lucknow-Cities-The Times of India
      SIC to introduce new regulations
      LUCKNOW: The provisions of the Criminal Procedure Act have to be more strictly followed in issuing summons and slapping penalties on the erring Public Information Officers (PIOs).
      This was among the many suggestions made by RTI activist Arvind Kejriwal towards strengthening the Right to Information (RTI) Act in the state.
      Kejriwal met UP's Chief Information Commissioner (CIC) Gyanendra Sharma on Friday. State Information Commission (SIC) has evolved a set of regulations with a purpose to expedite the functioning of the commission and dispose cases as soon as possible. "We discussed the regulations and he made some suggestions," said Sharma.
      The new regulations specify that applicants will have to be more restrained in voicing their complaints as the SIC will only consider appeals written in dignified language. Besides, the complaints/appeals will have to complete in all respects.
      The name and address of the complainant/applicant, name and address of the Public Information Officer (PIO) and the first appellate authority against whom appeal has been filed will have to be mentioned therein along with the reason behind the complaint/appeal.
      The new set of regulations have been posted on the official website of the UPSIC and recommendations have started pouring in. The regulations have been devised by the commission as deciding the functioning of the body is entirely its internal matter. "These regulations are defined in the Act but we wish to regularise these provisions", added the CIC.
      The commission will start following these new regulations shortly. Once these regulations come into force, even the old cases marked for further hearings will be dealt with in accordance with the new guidelines.
      The regulations have taken into consideration the common complaint that lot of applicants could not make to the hearing as they are not informed on time by the commission. With new regulations being implemented, applicants will have to be informed seven days in advance of the date of hearing. However, applicants wishing not to appear for the hearing will have to mention it clearly in their appeals/complaints. This will not defer the hearing and case will be disposed off on time.
      To give the commission a proper view into the matter, the applicant/complainant will have to attach self-attested copies of the applications submitted to the PIO along with the receipt of the fee deposited and of the order, if any, passed by the PIO on that application.
      A similar set of documents (concerning the first appellate authority) will have to be submitted if the appeal is against this official. Besides, all the complaints/appeals will have to contain a proper indexing of all the documents submitted to the commission. It is this regulation which is seeing maximum opposition and even Kejriwal did not favour it arguing that indexing will make the job difficult for the common man.
      The complainant/applicant will have to make it clear if he/she has not filed any prior appeal or complaint on the matter taken up by him/her in the commission along with documents which form the basis of his/her appeal or complaint.
      It will also be required of the applicant/complaint to submit the copy of appeal/complaint to the PIO against whom it is addressed and even this regulation has not won points with the people. However, the SIC will implement the new regulations only after people have a chance to study them and provide feedback.

    • Instances that involve disclosure of sensitive information, it may be rationale for the CPIO to ask for citizenship proof
      Information Commissioner Divya Prakash Sinha held that seeking citizenship proof in case of demand of sensitive information is justified but seeking a signed copy of the application does not seem appropriate as the online portal does not mandate uploading of signatures.
      Sinha was hearing the plea of an Odisha-based RTI applicant who had sought from the Army information regarding implementation of rules under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 in all defence establishments.
      The Army did not provide any information to the applicant, the CIC noted. Akhand approached the Commission with a complaint that the central public information officer (CPIO) of the Army has demanded a signed copy of his online RTI application as well as identity proof before providing him the records.
      “In this regard, it may be noted that as far as CPIO’s request for citizenship proof is concerned, the same is not questioned as Commission in its prior decision(s) has held the view that Armed Forces stand on a slightly different footing as there may be instances that involve disclosure of sensitive information, and for such reasons it may be rationale for the CPIO to ask for citizenship proof,” Sinha noted.

    • Some of you -- at least CJ Karira, who helped me years ago in one crucial step, getting SEBI to acknowledge its own circular! -- know of a 15-year quest among desi academics to get SEBI to release its stale masked FII data for academic research. At one point years ago a parliamentary query by Shyam Benegal, then Rajya Sabha MP, sought the release of this data for academic research. He then made a subsequent RTI query asking what had done about his complaint about the terrible answer he got to his parliamentary question. We thought we had succeeded when in response to that SEBI did put in public domain that FII data and promised to update. And to  their credit, they did update it from time to time, even if a bit fitfully. But thanks to a question by a curious IIT-Madras undergrad, we realized that what SEBI gave with one hand they took away with another. While the idea was that the FII IDs would be masked to preserve privacy, without telling anyone, SEBI changed the masks each month, drastically reducing the value for academic research (since you can't even tell how many distinct FIIs are there in the data base, and whether anyone traded over time). It also caused mistakes in academic research since no one imagined that SEBI would use changing masks, when no other regulator or exchange on the planet does so.

      To get SEBI to finally agree to not hide by changing masks, but to keep a stable mask, has taken many years. But at least per the ruling received yesterday, it has been achieved, with no violence to anyone. I attach the ruling. I can also post the various submissions made at the Second Appeal hearing if there is any interest (need to scrub email-IDs, per the policy of this site).

      Addendum_To_CIC_2nd_appeal_28th_February_2020.pdfThis RTI site, in particular Karira-ji, has been very helpful to me in the course of this long episode thru countless RTI queries. And I am grateful for that from the bottom of my heart. I am confident we will see quite a few PhD dissertations using this database within the next few years.
