There is no format for an RTI application
It is just that your application should be drafted in a way that gives a clear idea about the information you are seeking from the officer. It should be addressed to the Public Information Officer of the department/ division you are seeking information from. Although, your application is generally forwarded to the concerned department if the information is not available with the addressee but it is advisable to send your application to concerned department to save the time of forwarding.
Also, to ease the process for finding information it should mention about the timeline pertaining to the required information. If the application is for the inspection of records, it should be mentioned in the application categorically and inquire about a suitable time for the same.
An applicant is exempted from the application fee of ₹10 if they belong to BPL category. In that case, attach a proof for the same, otherwise mention about the mode of payment for the RTI application with the receipt number and date of payment.
As you will receive your reply through post, it is important to mention your complete postal address in the application. And most importantly, do not forget to sign and write your name at the bottom of the application.
