RTI is applicable to Public Authorities only and not to individual in your case.
G.L.N. Prasad (Retired employee.) 26 October 2018
Can we file a RTI to seek what the electricity meter is charging is only from our household and not from our landlord's downstairs?
1.If you are a consumer, you have every right to seek such information from Electircity dept and ask them to ensure correct running of the meter. No RTI is needed for that.
2.You can ask any local electrician to check this . The process is simple. Switch off all your appliances and check whether your digital meter is running during that time.. You can use 100 watts bulb for prescribed time of half an hour and switch of all applicances and note down before switching to bulb and after switching off and arriving as to whether there is misuse of electricity through some other connections. You can do it without the information to land lord/other tenant. Once this is established, you can engage an electrician to check the illegal connections, equipped with facts.
