    Default Applicability of rules framed by State Government in the State.


    Information was sought from Nationa Insurance Company Ltd., A PSU Company having branch offices at West Bengal through RTI application affixing a court fee stamp of Rs10/- (which is permitted by W.B. RTI rules). The Company rejected the prayer saying proper fees (IPO/DD) was not affixed.

    Default Re: Applicability of rules framed by State Government in the State.


    RTI Rules applicable for Central Govt. PSUs and State Govt. PSUs are different, irrespective of the geographical location of the PSU.

    National Insurance Company Ltd. is a PSU under the Central Govt. and therefore Central RTI Rules & Fees would apply.

    Kindly click on the following link for Central Govt. RTI Rules & Fees: Central RTI Rules and Fees and information about CIC - Guide
