Is there a word limit for filing an RTI application? How many questions can an applicant raise in a single RTI application?

The RTI Act does not prescribe a limit on the number of questions being asked in a single application or the number of words that an application should be limited to. However, a very lengthy application covering many issues spread over multiple public authorities gives an impression that the applicant is not serious and his intention is to harass the public authority.

Therefore, an applicant should avoid bundling a series of requests relating to multiple public authorities into one application. They should preferably be drafted as separate applications and paid for accordingly.
