For officers involved in the RTI mechanism

The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), through its Institute of Secretariat Training and Management, is organising a series of short courses on the RTI Act in the months of February and March.

The courses are open to all officers of the Government (including the defence services) who have been designated as Public Information Officers or Appellate Authorities under the RTI Act and also to those who are heads of public authorities. The courses are not chargeable and there is no course fee. Outstation officers shall be offered hostel facility in AC/Non-AC rooms on first-come first-served basis, in case so desired.

The details of the courses and the application process are available in the circular which can be accessed by clicking here. For more details, Mr Parth Vasaniya, the Assistant Director of the Institute, may be contacted on the email address mentioned in the circular.

Yes, of course. You may file a RTI application. Best way is to do it on a Rs 10 stamp paper since that is an irrefutable proof of payment of Rs 10 fee to the govt.
Do frame the questions very carefully since they will reply exactly to what has been asked and not a word more.
