The government department is supposed to respond within 30 days. If some other department is handling the questions you have asked, they are supposed to forward it to the relevant department and keep you informed about that. If they don't reply, you can send a reminder. 8/n

Send it to the concerned authority, and add an acknowledgement card if you're spending it by speed post. For those who don't know what an AD card is, it provides an acknowledgement that someone has received your letter. You can get this at the post office. 7/n

Check the organisation's RTI rules (there is usually a provision on their webpage for that) where they will specify how the payment is to be made. 6/n

At the end of the application, you'll have to pay the RTI application fee. You can stick a ten rupee court fee stamp, or in some cases, you will have to pay the ten rupees application fee for the RTI online. 5/n

There is no upper limit to questions that you can ask, however, remember that it is always better to be succinct and to the point. If you have a lot of questions, you can spread the RTI application through different application letters. 4/n

You have the right to ask for information from a government department under the Right to Information Act. While this request for information is subject to a few conditions, many people don't go down this road as they aren't aware how to go about it. 1/n

Your employer needs to put this up on their display board. If they aren't doing this, ask them for these details and also why they haven't put up/shared all of this information in the manner mandated by law with their employees. Very important, thank you :)

(if they don't have an internal complaints committee, and they employ more than 10 people, they are in violation of the law) Small things like asking these questions will make you feel more empowered and secure in your knowledge that you have a remedy should things go south n/n

What can you do in your workplace to ensure your safety - ask for a copy of your organisation's code of conduct on sexual harassment - ask them to provide the list of internal complaints committee members 1/n

Also, when a woman is being arrested, it is a female police officer who can touch her, to make that arrest. These are some basic procedural formalities that we should all know. n/n

Even if you have to be arrested during this time due to exceptional circumstances, a woman police officer will have to submit a written report and take the permission of the Judicial Magistrate before the arrest is made. 2/n
