How does it work?

Guidelines for submission

Review and follow the guidelines to increase the chances that your request will be submitted by YouRTI and that it will receive a response.

  • Clearly State Your Request: Begin your query by clearly stating what information you are seeking. Be specific and avoid vague language.
  • Provide Necessary Details: Include any relevant details that can help narrow down the scope of your request. This could include dates, names, locations, or any other pertinent information.
  • Reference Applicable Laws or Regulations: If your request falls under specific laws or regulations, reference them in your query. This demonstrates that you are aware of your rights and the obligations of the recipient to respond.
  • Specify the Format of the Response: Indicate whether you prefer to receive the information electronically or in hard copy. This ensures that you receive the information in a format that is convenient for you.
  • Mention Time Constraints (if any): If your request is time-sensitive, clearly specify the deadline by which you need the information. This can prompt a quicker response from the recipient.
  • Avoid Asking for Personal Information: Ensure that your request does not infringe on the privacy rights of individuals. Stick to requesting information that is in the public domain or directly related to government activities or policies.
  • Do Not Submit Grievances: The RTI Act is not intended for submitting grievances and YouRTI will only submit queries that ask for information.
If you think that your submission was incorrectly rejected by the system, then email, and we will look into it.
