Go for the first appeal to FAA.

Read Sec.7  (1)in Telugu.  The act stipulates rejection can be made only under reasons specified in Sec.8 or Sec.9.

Sec.8 or Sec.9 never state that rejections can be made with such reasons as   "the record has been searched but could not be traced"
is a valid reason, every Public information officer can reject such application stating such invented reason for rejection.

First Appal dt....under RTI Act

Before: First Appellate Authority, State Archives and Research Institute, Telangana.............

Against:  State Public Information Officer, State Archives and Research Institute, Telangana..........


Grounds for Appeal:  SPIO has rejected the  RTI application stating a reason unknown in RTI Act.

Sec.7  (1) stipulates rejection can be made only under reasons specified in Sec.8 or Sec.9.

SPIO has invented a reason for denial unknown in RTI Act.

It appears that the concerned officer is not aware of fundamentals in RTI Act and DOPT prescribed a form of response/denial and SPIO failed to provide further appeal procedure as per Sec. 7 (8)

SPIO is most irresponsible in his duties and acted negligently.

PRAYER: Appellant prays for directions to SPIO for tracing the record and for providing it as expeditiously as possible without any fee.  Appellant also prays for directions to PIO on Sec. 7 (8).


Encl  PIO response xerox self-attested on back of this first appeal.

Please do not trespass into a thread not connected with your issue as it is against the discipline of the forum and inconvenience to members. Go to nearest AADHAR center or post office or BSNL office and seek such information and they may charge you nominal amount and inform you such numbers.  You can even file an application and get the same delinked.  Do carry your original AADHAR for their verification.  RTI is not necessary in your case.

That you have to verify in your State Information Commission website.

There are no prescribed formats for appeals or fees in erstwhile Andhra Pradesh or in present AP.
