RTI Story 2
Priya joined Lady Hardinge Medical College as an MBBS Intern. After working long hours and sleepless nights, she was surprised when she didn’t receive her stipend on time. She approached the authorities. They gave a vague reply and some assurance. After three months of waiting, she decided it was time to do something.
Priya approached OnlineRTI with her request. We counselled her that under RTI, the college needs to inform her why her stipend was delayed. Also, she will get to know when the stipend will be paid to her. Within 30 days of filing her RTI, the Medical College answered all her questions and Priya received her stipend! RTI has many uses for young people and it is important for them to know about their rights. Few matters which can be solved using RTI are -
- Scholarship issues
- Stipend issues
- Knowing Eligibility criteria for Government Posts
- Getting Copies of Answer sheets/OMR Copies of Government Exams
- Verification of marksheet or degree (especially helpful for Distance education/online degree students)
And a lot others! Students have filed over 50,000 RTIs on OnlineRTI.
