Rti opinion and advises

(Querist) 02 September 2020 This query is : Resolved 
I approached Sub Registrar in Tamilnadu seeking certain information regarding my land sales.I asked the queries and asked them to clarify my queries through the information available in Government records. But the PIO replied to all queries that "Opinion cannot be given as per RTI act" and rejected my RTI application. I asked them to clarify my queries but the PIO gave reply like this. Does Opinion and advises cant be seek through RTI?. Kindly clarify my issues..

I asked the following queries under RTI
1.Whether Patta will be considered as a Title document?
2.Who will be considered as a owner of land. WHETHER the name of person in Title deed or name of person in Revenue documents?
3.Do revenue documents is alone accepted for land registration?

For all the above queries the PIO replied Opinion cannot be given under RTI
Government definitely might have setup rules and guidelines for land registration. In those rules the above queries might have answers.those can be given as information right.

Kindly clarify it please

Repeated story as you have already been advised and obliged as under:

Prajesh Jehan asked a query in Experts "Rti opinion and advises"
Prajesh Jehan posted a new topic in forum "Rti rules" application"
Prajesh Jehan asked a query in Experts "Rti act 2005 application"
Prajesh Jehan asked a query in Experts "Rti application doubt"

Whether repetition of the same query can change opinion and advise of experts.? Answer is "NO".

What the PIO says is right. Answers to your questions cannot be normally obtained under RTI.

Opinions of whatever nature cannot be sought through RTI. The opinions you sought from the authority are probably inferences based on the statutes available with the authority.

You can seek information from the documents available with the authority but not the interpretation of the provisions those statutes contain.

In order to obtain information under RTI one should craft questions in such a way that they should point to the information and documents available with the public authority.

If appeal already filed, wait for the reply, if again declined, file IInd appeal.
