Re: [rti_india] Re: The greatest RTI discovery since the invention of sliced bread


Dear Group,

1) The formula works very well, and I get about 75% acceptance of such RTIs.
All the "good quality" PIOs /PAs invariably accept such RTIs.

2) As Manoj has pointed out, the drafting is critical

3) It is not limited to section 4 information, the formula applies to all section 6

4) There is no need to use digital signatures

5) The "slight flaw" is not a flaw but a procedural interpretation. I am sure
that when some RTI activist tries to replicate our formula and gets an
unfavorable order from the Commissions, that this route will be blocked
for all of us. ;-)

I tried it out some time back and I should be "shocked & shaken, but not stirred" to tell you that I got all information. This includes from seven PA in your city of Mumbai. I also tried it out, with two Central Govt. PA in J&K, long before their own (news avatar) came into force.

It all depends on how you draft the email elaborating the provisions of Section 6 & 7, like Sarbajit described, without quoting Section 4. Of course, I had sent digitally signed emails.

Though the points give by Sarbajit are all sound, there is a slight flaw. Let us leave it to the "not so disclosure friendly" CPIOs & FAAs "disclose" this flaw to us. Till then enjoy the slice of bread.

Regretfully still petrified.

Dear Sarbajit,
Appreciate your invention. It will also be good if somebody has tried such means of application and/or you try one test case by appling so by electronic means, with out fees.
