Strictly the response should be in the language of the application

Comment: This is a major problem but idiotic nevertheless. Strictly the response should be in the language of the application! The babus are at it again- subverting the law with impunity!

Comment: Even if the forwarding letter is in language in which the application has been filed, if the information is provided in the local language to the applicant who has filed the application, the whole purpose of providing information to the citizen in affordable manner at reasonable cost is lost. Some guidelines need to be adopted to make the system workable to aid transparency.
