Step 2:

IInd application was filed on 24.12.07, addressed to the Head Master, St. Joseph’s College, Ramanathapuram, TN – This school is funded/ sponsored by the government of Tamil Nadu But privately managed schools {by Missionaries} and replied received on 10.1.08 within the time period given in the law…. BUT got reply from the “Legal Advisor” of the Institution/School. Without any information/ reply to the application.


The details asked in this application were…..

Sub: Voluntary declaration under Sec 4(1) (b)/ 6 (1) of the Right to Information Act 2005


Please provide the section 4(1)(b)/6(1) declaration under the RTI Act 2005.


  • What is the actual amount of Fees {monthly or annual} collected by the school management from 2001 to 2007 for students studying from standard 6th – 10th?
  • What is the amount charged by the school for the PTA -Parents Teachers Association from 2001 till 2007 and is there any norm for collecting?
  • If the management is recorded all the collected/charged amount of fees in its book of accounts, I would like to have a copy of them from 2001 - 2007?
  • Is there any other charges collected by the school management, apart from the regular school fees or PTA fees from 2001 to 2007? If any… mention with the amount charged?

Step 3: Wanted to get few clarifications for further proceedings…

  • Can a Legal Advisor reply to the RTI on behalf of a particular Public Authority {organization/ Institution}.
  • In the letter the Legal Advisor has specifically quoted that the application is wrongly addressed as well this institution is not covered under the RTI act….
  • In the reply from the PA,{sent by the Legal Advisor on behalf of the Institution} had used Demeaning/Dehumanizing and Demotivating language – as per my assumption I clearly see that there is an strategy used for me to withdraw this application from further proceedings…


    • How do I take up this unlawful words used in the RTI by the Legal Advisor as well how do I Pass on the information that RTI is a common man’s law to the Advocate?
    • What is the clause for me to fill against this para that did hit my Humaniness?

    [*]Hence forth – How should I proceed with this application?

Looking forward for your kind reply at the earliest…
