Right To Information

Contact details of officers for addressing applications under the Right to Information Act, 2005:

Information provided under the Act is available to citizens of India only. Applications should be submitted along with documentry proof of Indian Citizanship (like copy of personal particulars pages of current valid Indian passport).

Applications seeking information under the Act may be sent along with the prescribed fee in Danish Kroner, equivalent to Indian Rs. 10/- in cheque or demand draft favouring Embassy of India, Copenhagen. [The official Rupee-Kroner conversion rate for the prevailing month may be used.]

It may also be pointed out that as per Section 6(1(a) of the RTI Act, 2005, a person who desires to obtain information under the Act is required to submit the application to the Information Officer of the "concerned public authority". Applicants are, therefore, advised to send their requests under the RTI Act to the Embassy only when the subject matter can reasonably be presumed to pertain to the Embassy. Where the information required obviously does not pertain to the Embassy, the application may be addressed to the concerned PIO directly. While section 6(3) of the RTI Act, 2005 provides for the transfer of an application by a receiving PIO to another [concerned] PIO, this is clearly meant to cover situations where the application is addressed to a PIO on the assumption that it has been directed to the correct PIO, in the first instance.
