What if PIO wants more information or extra fee to share information through your RTI application? As per Section 7 (3) of the Right to Information Act, 2005 the PIO may ask for an additional fee, and maybe sometimes they seek more information/document after receiving the directions of First Appellate Authority to provide you the information.
Many Public Information Officers (PIOs) have an opinion the RTI applicant will not do a follow-up or file the First Appeal, so they don’t bother to provide the information until and unless we ask them again. And, if you do not follow-up with the PIO via Call/Emails or Postal Mail, then you will certainly never get the information. Therefore, Team RTIwala has come up with Follow-up Add-on 1 services where the RTIwala will do the sincere follow-up on behalf of you and ask why we have not received the information and when we’ll receive the same?
The Follow-up Add-on 2 process will not increase the possibility of getting the information but also save your time, money and efforts in Filing First Appeal or another RTI Application. As we’ll follow-up with the PIO by call or email (maybe both) provided by you. We will call/email them two counts as a second follow-up will be after two days.
