RTI Rules: RTI Act 2005 Rules for State Governments

RTI Rules: Central and State Information CommissionWhen you want to submit request for information under RTI Act, 2005, you must be aware of two things: RTI Act, and RTI Rules of Central or State Governments, as the case may be. There are no common RTI Rules for both Central and State Governments. Every State has its own RTI Rules. RTI Rules provide details of format of RTI Application, Fees Structure, Mode of Payment, etc. If you don’t follow the specific rules of the concerned State, then your application may be rejected. Thus, before submitting RTI Application, you must know RTI Rules: RTI Act 2005 Rules for State Governments.

There are two types of RTI Rules:

  1. Central/ State Information Commission (Appeal Procedure) Rules
  2. Right to Information (Regulation of Fee and Cost) Rules

Appeal Procedure deals with format of Appeal before Central/State Information Commission. This includes various information including contents of appeal, documents to accompany appeal, and procedure in deciding appeal. Right to Information (Regulation of Fee and Cost Rules) includes details of fees and methods of fees payment for RTI Application, Appeals, and Complaints. Few states such as Karnataka and Bihar do not provide separate document for Appeal procedure, and RTI Fees. They provide both information in single document.
