0 votes

Can government deny information saying that information is not available in compiled form. for example, if we ask number ACB cases pending before the government from 2017-18 and their status.

What is the remedy if government states that information is not available though asked information is very basic information.

Under section 19 of RTI Act, 2005 you can file a First Appeal application to concerned First Appellate Authority of the said Department. Under Section 19 any applicant can make a first appeal application if he/she is not provided with the requested information/ incomplete response or is not satisfied with the provided information after payment of requisite fees. An appeal shall be disposed of within 30 days on the receipt of the appeal by the First Appellate Authority or within such extended period not exceeding a total of 45 days from the date of filing thereof, as the case may be, for reasons to be recorded in writing.
