Is there any form for applying under RTI?
As such SIE does not prescribe any form for seeking information under RTI Act. One can simply write a request along with the fee and information required. Applicants belonging to BPL (Below poverty line) are exempt from depositing the fee subject to production of the proof.
What if I want photocopy of the documents/information available with the SIE?
If you want the copy of some documents you have to send the photocopying charges ( 2 Rs per copy) along with the postal charges to send the documents.
What if I do not get a reply?
Normally information is sent within a period of 30 days from the receipt of the RTI application in SIE. However If you do not get a reply you can submit first appeal to the appellate authority. In case you do not get the reply of the first appeal you may submit second appeal to the Central Information Commission.
