Any Indian Citizen can seek information that is not exempted under RTI Act from Public Authorities. A citizen can only mention his name alone and not his designation as an applicant as a designated official is not a citizen. Mr X can seek information in his name Mr.X, but Not as Secretary, Y Trade Union. Some officials either for more attention and caution on his application or for such legal purposes use such tactics and there is no additional benefit, and such applications only with designations can be rejected by PIO.
The following criteria should be satisfied: The information sought should be of such nature that any member of the public, not necessarily a trade union leader, has the right to seek the information. The management in possession of the information should be a public authority.
Please never mention the names of PIO and FAA. The concerned named officials' postings are transferable, and the websites of those authorities were never updated. For example if the application is made to Mr.X, PIO, he might have been transferred and Mr. Y might be working as PIO, then Mr.Y will not accept the postal envelope with the name of Mr.X. Always, Always use only the designation of officials and avoid the application by name. I am not stating the law or whether refusal will be proper or not, depending on several practical issues in the past of refusal, out of experience I suggest mentioning of only designation in Govt. Correspondence. (Prevention is better than cure)
