RTI Application Form in Hindi - Points to Remember
Some state governments have proper formats that need to be followed while filing an RTI, if you live in such a state, make sure to follow the format prescribed by your state government.
Pay the correct amount of fee and make sure you follow the proper mode of payment as prescribed in your state RTI rules. For central government, pay by postal order of Rs.10/- in favour of “Accounts officer ___________ [Always mention name of organization to which you are addressing application].
Send your RTI application with the attached fee by regd. or speed AD post.
Avoid submitting your RTI Application in person or through courier.
Never address your Public Information Officer by their personal name. Use their official designation of Public Information Officer.
A very important part of the application is properly framing your query:
Do not ask questions such as why, when, who, how etc. , remember you are dealing with government authorities here, you need to respect them.
For example, instead of asking “why is my application not attended so far?” ask “Please provide me reasons on record and certified copy of records containing reasons for delay in attending my said application” - Or something like : “कृपया मुझे सूची के अनुसार मेरे आवेदन के प्रति उत्तर मिलने मे विलंभ के कारण सूचित करें|”
