You are absolutely Correct!  RDA does stand for Recommended Daily Allowance.

RDA is Recommended Daily Allowance and DRI is Dietary Refence intake which can either be RDA or even AI(Adequate intake).

RDA: it's the food quantaties that are recommended for general as a guide to know if they take enough amount of food per day or no.
DRI: ummm the exact amount of food that should a person takes daily.
