Can any one guess percentage of  of RTI Applications for which  information  was provided without going for first appeal ?

May be less than 10% maximum, as the forum has not received single appreciation of any PIO that provided correct information completely so far during last three yesrs ?

Why only negative feed back ?  Appreciate and encourage such PIOs by providing their names and public authority  who are sincere in providing information without going for first appeal .
