    Default what is the Validity of Court fees stamp used in the RTI Application

    I had made an RTI application on 10.10.2011to Vasai-Virar Municipal Corporation and has affixed court fees stamp of Rs.10/= dated 2.2.2011. I received a reply stating that the court fees stamp affixed is invalid as it is valid only for 6 months from the date of issue.

    I had checked the Bombay Court fees act, their is no such validity period mentioned.

    Kindly guide me.

    Prefer first appeal before the FAA challenging the decision of the PIO.

    Do as Raveena advised. There is no expiry of the Court fee stamps.

    Yourself, or the PIO may be confusing Court Fees stamp with Non Judicial Stamp Paper, that actually has a validity of 6 months from the date of issue. In case of court fees stamp, there is nothing like a date of issue
