question on getting ration card copy - tamilnadu

Recommended Posts


my grandfather had a ration card in tamilnadu n his name and transferred to my grandmother name in mid 90s after his death.

he had 3 sons. and one son is residing at the address and rest all moved out.

is it possible to get copy of such ration card from 80s and 90s by filing a RTI along with copy of legal heir certificate. this is required for some civil suit .will it still come under public information or will t be rejected. as i heard , civil supplies in tamilnadu have poor track record of responding to RTIs and rejecting with frivolous reasons.

please advise

Members of this forum can not foretell as to whether a public authority can provide the information or reject any information, and can not even scrutinise and pass judgments on functioning of a public authority.

A S K is first word in learning RTI. Seek such information from SPIO, if not there are other remedies of first and second appeal under RTI Act. Provide basic minimum details and if either your grandfather or grandmother has provided such copy to any public authority to open accounts or to claim any medical benefits as such, you can get that copy duly certified. The possibility is that the copy should have been available somewhere and lot of investigation is needed. Once you provide minimum details you may get that record.

Search website of Public authority, to locate PIO. Now you are assumed something, try sincerely without positive expectations.
