Whether a RTI Petition and a Writ Petition can be filed simultaneously?



  • Whether a RTI Petition and a Writ Petition filed concurrently or simultaneously for same cause and if so, how it will be closed?


  • RTI Experts

    Yes.
    A RTI Application and a Writ petition are seperate remedies and you can file them simultaneously, irrespective of the cause of actin involved.
    Infact, you can use the information obtain from the RTI Act in the writ petition.



  • Thanks a lot.
