    No.

    The information requested by you in your query deals with a judicial process and as such the RTI Act would not be beneficial for the requested purpose. Issuing of summons is carried out by the Court itself and is a separate judicial procedure. The RTI Act cannot be availed for issuing of summons.

    The remedy is that you can inspect the court file which can be done by the concerned counsel of your case and ascertain the reasons for non-issuance.
