NRIs cannot file RTI applications: Govt
Non-Resident Indians cannot file RTI applications to seek governance-related information from the central government departments, the Lok Sabha was informed today.
"Only citizens of India have the right to seek information under the provisions of Right to Information Act, 2005. Non-Resident Indians are not eligible to file RTI applications," Minister of State for Personnel Jitendra Singh said in a written reply.
"Currently, systems of 2,200 public authorities have been aligned to receive, process and reply to online RTIs from the applicants," the minister said.
A detailed user manual and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are available on the website to help in filing the application, he said.
