i had submiited an rti application to an asst PIO of kerala govt seeking certain information which comes under his" jurisdiction".however some of the information if divulged could be embarassing to the authorities(my feeling).
i had received a reply from State PIO stating that my application has been forwarded to a different authority for furnshing reply direct to me.Now my questions are_
1) i feel the new authority to whom my application has been forwarded is not competent to give replies to my queries as answers to almost 95% of my queries does not comes under his jurisdiction. as such he may not be able to provide informations to me in this regard.
2)If he provide information to my queries,will it be binding on all?
3) If he is not providing(I am sure about this) the necessary information, to whom should i file an appeal?
4)how long should I wait for the answers for the original application filed on 09th Nov 2009?
