Quick Overview

Taxmann Pios Guide to RTI

  • A Comprehensive Guide to Right to Information Act, 2005 for Public Information Officers, First Appellate Authorities and other Government Servants.

  • Ensuring a time bound reply to the RTI applications is an additional responsibility for most of the Public Information Officers (PIOs) and the First Appellate Authorities (FAAs). While a plethora of literature exists for the applicants, there is a virtual absence of reading material which looks at the RTI Act from the point of view of a PIO. This book aims at helping the PIOs and the FAAs in fulfilling their duties efficiently as per the Act.


    This Guide is based on a detailed study of more than 50,000 CIC Orders and hundreds of Judgments of Courts. Some of topics comprehensively discussed are :



    • Scrutiny on receipt of an application

      • Is the applicant entitled to file application?

      • Does the applicant seek ’information’?
