Need your help for how to proceed under RTI Act-2005.
An application was submitted 1&1/2 yrs ago to the D.I./S S.E. but till no reply. Pls, advice in details.August 30, 2012 at 2:07 pm #73857
Applications under RTI Act 2005 are barred by the limitations. In an application under section 6 of the RTI Act 30 days is the limit of getting the information. If it is forwarded to the concerned department by the Department with which the matter is not concerned but you had submitted your application then the limit becomes 35 days as additional five days are even for forwarding the application to the actual Department. If you do not get the reply within those 35 days you can file an appeal under section 19 clause 1 of the RTI act 2005 within another 45 days (which is known as first appeal) with the appellate authority of the same Department. Even if your first appeal is not entertained within 30 days you can submit a complaint under section 18, a further appeal under section 19 clause 3 praying for ordering for providing the information and for penalty or departmental proceeding et cetera under section 20 of the RTI act to the Chief information Commissioner within 90 days from the date of the expiry of the period of first appeal . In your case the limitations have been exhausted. Now you have to file either a fresh petition under section 6 of the RTI act or you can also file a petition under section 6 of the RTI act addressed to the state public information officer of the Department where you had submitted your application 1 1/2 year back asking about the fate of the said application as well as with whom it was lying and what steps had been taken on day to day basis. I believe this will be an easier process to revive that old application. It will also make your case strong. Another step can be taken by you by filing a complaint against the SPIO of the same Department with the Public Authority of the Department. You can also do one more thing i.e sending an advocate’s letter to the SPIO and the public authority of that particular Department with intimation that the matter will be taken before the Honourable High Court Calcutta under Article 226 of the Constitution of India making the SPIO and Public Authority of the said Department a party to compel them to provide the information. However, many few people know that an information seeker obtains the status of a consumer by affixing a fee of Rs. 10 for getting the information. You can visit the website rti.org and can get the detail information.August 30, 2012 at 4:08 pm #73864

Dear Mr. Roy,
Pls see my communication on RTI Act once again and download all the documents.
The manner of seeking information from any organisation, mode of payment of fees etc. are described in details in the RTI guide. You will get answers there, prticularly in Part-III which provides guidance to information seekers.
It is always adviceable to get the details about the addressee of application i.e. PIO, SPIO etc. in respect of a office/deptt./organisation from its official website.
The information seekers have to pay Rs 10/- in cash or by Banker’s cheque, D.D., Postal Order and Court Fee, if applicable, along with the application at the initial stage. The PIO of the concerned office/deptt. may ask to pay additional fees, if necessary, depending upon the cost of supply of information.
General procedure for submission of application is same as the RTI Act was originally introduced by the Centre. State govts. make some rules under special provisions of the Act. Some minor differences may be there in the manner of application. For the State of WB see the following link: “www.wbic.gov.in”
For NCTE see the link “www.ncte-india.org”September 11, 2012 at 3:53 pm #74080
