Applicants are, therefore, advised to send their requests Under the RTI Act to the High Commission only when the subject matter can reasonably be presumed to pertain to High Commission. 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 situation where the application is addressed to a PIO on the assumption that it has been directed to the PIO concerned. Where the Information required obviously does not pertain to the High Commission, the application may be addressed to the concerned PIO directly.
