How to seek information from your village, taluka, district panchayat or collector's office?  Learn RTI

Friends, we all know that there is a lot of corruption in government works in our country but we cannot fight corruption due to lack of legal information.  In villages, panchayats and municipalities as well as other government departments have become centers of open corruption.  The people's money is running out and the people are sitting with their hands up.  Here is the information if you want to fight in your area as a conscious citizen.

 What is RTI?

 The law was first enacted in India in 2007 during the tenure of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.  The name of the law is "Right to Information Act - 2006".  The law is called the RTI Act for short.  According to the provisions of this law, any person in India can seek information from the government by doing RTI in any office in India.

 General information about RTI.

 Every citizen of India can do RTI without any discrimination of any caste, gender, age, income, or category.
 The fee for doing RTI is Rs 50 from Gujarat State Government, while the fee from Central Government is Rs 10.
 There is no prescribed RTI form or form.  RTI can be done on any blank or marked paper.
 RTI is valid even if it is typed in computer or handwritten or transcribed by someone else.
 By doing RTI, information can be sought from any government office in India or any office in the state of Gujarat.
 Online RTI cannot be done in Gujarat.
 There is no need for the applicant to give a reason or explanation for seeking any kind of information.  There is also no need to report what information is to be used.
 By doing RTI, you can also inspect the official records of any government office in person.
 By doing RTI, you can seek information from various government departments like Gram Panchayat, Taluka-District Panchayat, Nagarpalika, Mahanagarpalika, Electricity Department, Bank, Railway, Police, Mamlatdar.
 Public authority regarding access to government records, documents, memos, e-mails, opinions, advice, press releases, circulars, orders, logbooks, contracts, reports, papers, samples, replicas, electronically stored data material and any private body by the applicant through RTI.  Incoming information may be requested.

 How to write an application for information?

 To do RTI, you have to write on a piece of paper your name, address, mobile number, date, and all the details you need from which government office.
 There is a government fee of Rs 50 for applying for RTI, which can be paid in cash or by postal order or a court ticket of Rs 50.
 The application can be submitted in blank paper, in printed form or by typing or in sample.
 It is necessary to put any ticket with 1, 2, 5 or 10 in the ticket and the total should be 50.
 After writing the RTI application, it is necessary to stamp it and get a Xerox.  Applications can be submitted in person at a government office.  Giving the original to the office and getting the office signature coins on Xerox and taking it back.
 If the application refuses to be taken in person or there is no time to go in person, the application should be put on the cover and sent by post only through "Registered Post Acknowledgment" to the address of the office.
 It is mandatory for the officer to reply to you within maximum 30 days after application.

 What to do after 30 days?

 There is no question if the required information is received from the government office after 60 days of applying for RTI but if the answer is not found, or found incomplete, or found vague, or found round, or found wrong, or not found at all, the applicant first appeals.  The officer can be informed by appealing within 30 days.

 Below is a sample RTI photo.  In which a sample of how to ask for account of works and grant of gram panchayat is given.
Thus, it is necessary to write RTI and send it to Talati in person or by post and wait for 30 days.

 Friends, if you want to learn RTI, instead of taking any kind of shortcut, apply regularly to the government office around you and you will learn quickly.  As you go through RTI, you will find yourself getting a lot of new information and motivation to do new things.



 Secondly, there is no need
 to be afraid or embarrassed in doing RTI and when you apply for the first time, you will show unnecessary fear to stop you from applying, or you will be pushed wrongly, or you will be disappointed by not giving information etc.  If you follow this regularly, the result will be certain.
