Many people find it difficult to submit an RTI application under the The Right to Information Act 2005 at various government offices physically owing to their busy schedule or other inevitable reasons. Not only urban people find it difficult to pursue the technical formalities but also the people at large at rural levels are also affected as the First Appellate Authority or even the offices of the Public Information Officers are located at Taluka or even district levels. However using the online portal of State of Maharashtra people can file RTI application online & even the first appeal also.
Many people waste their energy on social media for political debates or arguments, however using this online portal people can ask information related to implementation of the schemes for women and children, illegalities & unjust activities faced by them & most importantly about their grievances made to the public authorities time to time simply sitting at home.
The organization makes an appeal to people to file RTI applications for the action taken against the corruption related news published in reputed newspapers. We believe it is the most effective strategy against the corruption as the government fears the rejection of the information would lead the concerned media agency to further pursue the matter with people’s actual participation.
As above mentioned, the people of Maharashtra can file the online RTI applications under the Right to Information Act 2005 by visiting the following website-
After clicking the above mentioned link the following website homepage shall be opened-
After opening of the page above displayed, click on ‘Submit Request’ (Red Highlighted Circle) button for filing an RTI application. Thereafter following page shall be displayed-
As above displayed it would display the complete procedure & guidelines to file an RTI Application, at the bottom of the page after checking the tick mark option ‘I have read and understood the above guidelines’ & clicking the ‘Submit’ button thereafter the form to submit an RTI application shall be opened.
The applicant has to enter the details like, name, address with pin code, educational qualification, landline or mobile number, nationality, whether applicant is below poverty line (BPL) or not etc. The applicant if seeks the information based upon any document or complaint, he can upload the scanned file of the same with up to maximum size of 1MB in (PDF format only).
After filling all the necessary information, the applicant shall be taken to the payment page where he can pay the requisite fees & submit his RTI application. The applicant shall also receive the acknowledgement on their mobile number, email address in addition to PDF acknowledgement if the applicant desires so.
We make clear that we are aware of the act that the state government has deliberately with malafide intentions has not provided the sufficient resources & manpower to such information commissions so that the people get frustrated with usual delays which takes place till the final hearing. However if people use such online portals which saves their two major important steps, may result in infliction of fine of Rs.25000/- upon the errant officer and also can help the people belonging to rural area.
