RTI for Rental Agreement



  • I have rented a house at Hyderabad, the house owners are showing negligence in providing rental agreement. They took a deposit of Rs9500, which they mentioned that while vacating they will deduct arrears and breakage charges if any. I pressured them to give agreement before giving the deposit, but failed due to constant harassment and nagging for money from the owners. Even the receipts for the money, i took it with great effort.

    Can I get it through RTI, if not kindly letme know the other formalities. I have already got cheated by house owners like this. I wanted to know about the legal procedures before hand, in case this owner too follow the same suit like others. Kindly reply.

    Note: I am a Junior Research Fellow student (in case if you want to know my source of income), I assume that the formalities are same for employees as well as Junior Research Fellow students.

    Thank You

    No.

    The RTI act is not applicable to private disputes. It applies to cases where the information is held by a public authority.

    In your case, the RTI act would not be applicable
