When does an RTI application automatically gets closed



  • Is there a timeframe after which the RTI application gets automatically closed if its not answered?

    I had filed a first appeal to my RTI more than 90 days back and did not get a response. Is it the right time for second appeal or would the RTI have been closed?

    Till when can I do a second appeal?

    No.

    There is no mechanism as such whereby a RTI application can get 'closed'.

    In this scenario where there has been response to your first appeal, the remedy available is of a second appeal with the state commission or a complaint with the CEntral Information Commission.

    Even if there is a delay in filing of the appeal/complaint, the delay is condoned if a sufficient cause is provided stating why the applicant was prevented from filing the same within the time period.
