RTI Application to find out the cost related to changing the name of Bombay to Mumbai



Hi, Can anyone please tell me how do I file a RTI application to find out the cost incurred to state government and centre for each name change of major cities or for start just Bombay/Mumbai...


Info I need is in which department do I file the application... (some answer in detail please) and is there a provision for staying anonymous so I dont have to give out my name or address so culprits dont catch hold of me.. Many people want this information but are afraid to get into trouble or some gangster trying to kill them as we have seen of the recent RTI activists.

Firstly why would a gangster try to kill you for seeking information about expenses incurred in a name change of a city ? Was the gangster involved in the name change or did he make money out of the name changing process ?


For Bombay/Mumbai you can start with the Chief Ministers office and the GAD - General Administration department.



You can file a RTI application with the PIO. Details of PIO will be available on the website of the organisation/department, under the "RTI" link. Or simply call that office and ask "Who is the PIO in your office under the RTI Act 2005. I want to file a RTI application." ?


Your RTI Application has to be as per the RTI Rules and Fees for Maharashtra.

These are available in the Guide section of the Portal: RTI Guide


Please read the other articles in the Guide section as well as the links given in the FAQ here: RTI FAQ


These will be of help to you during the RTI process.
