When answer sheets of an exam are sought under RTI, then the Right to Information (Regulation of Fees and Cost) Rules, 2005 [RTI Rules] will govern the fees for procuring the same, the Supreme Court has held.

The decision was rendered by a Bench of Justices NV Ramana and S Abdul Nazeer, which made it clear that if there are other avenues to procure answer sheets, the applicant can choose which one to route her request through.
