5. If a citizen belongs to BPL category, he has to select the option ‘Yes’ in ‘Is the applicant below poverty line?’ field and has to upload a BPL card certificate in supporting document field. (No RTI fee is required to be paid by any citizen who is below poverty line as per RTI Rules, 2012)

6. On submission of the application, a unique registration number would be issued, which may be referred by the applicant for any references in future.

What do to if your RTI request is rejected?

There is fundamental difference between RTI Request and RTI Appeal.

RTI Request is filing application for the first time. Request is made by the citizen to one person (i.e. PIO) to provide information. This means that it involves only the citizen and PIO.

RTI Appeal is appeal before senior officer against decision of PIO. This means that here, a third person (i.e. Appellate Authority) comes between the citizen and the PIO.

Appeal is only filed when the citizen is not satisfied with the reply of PIO or PIO rejects citizen’s request for information.

This means RTI request is application process while RTI appeal is appellate procedure against decision on RTI application.

Steps for filing RTI First Appeal

1. For submitting First appeal application, click on ‘submit first appeal’ option. Upon clicking, ‘guidelines for use of RTI online portal’ screen will be displayed. This screen contains various guidelines for using RTI online portal.

2. Citizen has to click on the checkbox ‘I have read and understood the above guidelines’ and then click on submit button.

3. Online RTI first appeal form screen will be displayed. Applicant has to enter registration number, email ID and security code in the form.

4. Upon clicking the submit button, online RTI first appeal form will be displayed. The applicant can then select reason for filing appeal application from ‘ground for appeal’ dropdown field.

5. Text for RTI first appeal application should be upto 3000 characters. If the text is more than 3000 characters, then the application can be uploaded in supporting document field. (As per RTI Act, no fee has to be paid for first appeal).

6. On submission of the application, a unique registration number would be issued, which may be referred by the applicant for any references in future.

The application filed through this web portal would reach electronically to the nodal officer of concerned Ministry/Department, who would transmit the RTI application electronically to the concerned appellate authority.
