  • ans1. Yes, the documents that you have obtained under RTI Act and stamped as "UNDER RTI ACT" are valid and will be taken into consideration by the consumer forums.
    2. A certified copy is a copy of a primary/original document that has been verified as being a true copy of it. However, a document stamped as UNDER RTI verifies it to be a valid and legal document given under the Right to Information Act.
