Usually they take long route of manually sending RTI letters to many address with stamps and all.

Then comes writing, you have to write in a pre-defined format.

After a doubt or failure nobody feels so excited of writing a letter, then stamping it and then first you have to wait for the letter to reach then again wait for the reply and most of the times the reply does not bring anything except frustration.

Whatever, our government has a portal of filing an online RTI for any purpose. Now for PSU recruitment examinations, you can file an RTI within 5 minutes and get a reply within 30 days maximum, usually within 20-25 days.
