Applications seeking information under the Act may be sent along with the prescribed fee in Afghanis, equivalent to Indian Rupees 10 in cheque or demand draft favoring Consulate General of India, Jalalabad.

Information provided under the act is available to citizens of India only. Applications should be submitted along with documentary proof of Indian Citizenship(like copy of personal particulars pages of passport). More information is available at External website that opens in a new window. The mailing address is Consulate General of India, Jalalabad, Zone No. 1, Habibabad, Jalalabad.

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 Consulate only when the subject matter can reasonably be presumed to pertain to the Consulate. While section 6(3) 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 concerned PIO. Where the information required obviously does not pertain to the Consulate, the application may be addressed to the concerned PIO directly.

The scheme of Electronic Indian Postal Order (eIPO) has been launched by the Department of Posts, Ministry of Communications and Information Technology, in association with Department of Personal and Training (DoPT). This would enable the Indian citizens abroad to pay the RTI fee online.
