In order to examine an argument about the undue burden of RTI on an already overworked bureaucracy, a review of publicly reported statistics about RTI applications and first appeals handled by public authorities under the Government of India was done. These figures were compared with data about Central PIOs (CPIOs) and FAAs designated by public authorities. The CIC's Annual Reports are the source of the database put together for this study. The data spans from 2012-13 to 2018-19 – the years for which statistics are available in a reasonably consistent manner. For individual ministries and key public authorities, the statistics are reported for the most recent year, namely, 2018-19.
