Private Institutes




Namaste ,


I want to know whether RTI is applicable to private engineering colleges in Maharashtra? As I applied to one college named as JTM College of Engineering, Nhavi Marg, Faizpur - 425524, Dist.: Jalgaon(M.S.) where thay have appointed Public Information Officer, Asstt. PIO and Appeleate Officer as per the University Circular. But they replied me that " Their institute does not comes under the purview of RTI and hence cannot provide the information". Please help me in this matter.

Your RTI application to North Maharashtra University Jalgaon has to be as per the Maharashtra Govt. RTI rules and fees & will be addressed to the State Public Information Officer (SPIO or PIO).


Maharashtra RTI rules:Mahrashtra RTI Rules - RTI Guide


Maharashtra RTI application format (please make suitable changes): http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/attachments/ask-rti-query/414d1220457281-t-permit-rto-rti.doc


For detailed information on how to draft & file an RTI application, please see the "All About RTI" links on the homepage & RTI Guide section of this portal.


RTI procedure is :Time limits specified in the RTI Act - RTI Guide

1. RTI Application with Fee to PIO

2. If no reply/ not satisfied with reply in 30 (or 35 days in case of submission to APIO or under Section 6(3)),

First Appeal to the First Appellate Authority (normally a officer higher than the PIO)

3. If no reply/ not satisfied with reply in 45 days to the First Appeal, then Second Appeal to the CIC/SIC (time period is 90 days)


Possibly this info will be of good help to you
