State Government RTIs through Post Office
Posted by rtiact2005 on August 2, 2006
Where submitting an RTI to a State Government Public Authority is difficult or inconvenient, then the best route would be to submit “through Post Office” direct to the Governor of the State concerned. 10/- through UCR at the Post Office, that’s it. Or if that’s not feasible, then to the PMO. There is a CIC judgement on this in the Aruna Roy life&liberty case in April’06 on the Narmada Valley RTI which clarifies using the route of applying through PMO or other “super” PIOs.
Or convince the APIO/Post Office to accept the RTI Application and do a transfer under 6(3).
As I said, till “they” don’t make it easier to submit RTI Applications, “we” shall use every trick in the book to do so legally by any means, and if that means making the PIos at PMO or Governor into “super” PIOs, then so be it.
