RTI stands for Right to Information which was passed by the Government of India in 2005. This allows Indian citizens the right to access any government document which is under the public view. Through the use of RTI, one can obtain government information that concerns general public or is under public purview.

In order to obtain more information on RTI, visit the official RTI site.
BBMP website for RTI related information is as shown below 

Steps to file RTI

The user can find the PIO information, which is the person who can be contacted in order to obtain information, by choosing the appropriate department from which the information is required.
One can file the RTI with the PIO obtained in the above link. The application form should be submitted in the below mentioned format.

You would also need to attach a Rs. 10 postal code. Once the RTI has been filed, you would be able to receive the required information via postal order.

A form is available with the BBMP office. You can fill the form and enclose your questions. However, you need to fill the ward number which might be needed to fill the form.

The RTI can be handed over personally to the RTI officer. However, ensure that you obtain an acknowledgment letter with the date of filing and a copy of the RTI application form.

RTI can also be sent addressed to the RTI officer through speed post along with self addressed acknowledgement. The acknowledgement of the speed post can be considered as a proof of receipt.

You can expect a response to the RTI within 30 days. However, if you do not receive a response withing 30 days, then you can send a notice of complaint to the CIC. Karnataka CIC can also be approached in case the response to the RTI is inadequate or unacceptable.
