The matter can be hand written, or typed. There is no compulsion of typing the content. Make sure the application is eligible and easy to read. There is no restriction on number of pages for asking information. There are also no restriction on number of questions that can be asked in one application. However, it is generally advisable to ask restrict one application with limited set of questions and generally related ones. Be very specific & ask to the point questions.Don't ask vague questions. Ask as many short questions as you like ,but don't ask for voluminous information. Ask information always by writing your name and signature, and not by your post, as only citizen have the right to information. Do not ask a question containing 'WHY'! For example, questions like why you failed to pass the bill, is liable to be rejected for not covering under RTI Act. If the information sought is voluminous, it is better to ask it in the form of CD to save on cost. Remember that, you do not need to write the reason for asking the information.
