Re: draft letter
This section (Sec 7(6)) of the RTI Act can only be used in the First Appeal if the PIO has not replied within the 30 days mandated under Sec 7(1).
You cannot use this section at the time of making an application to the PIO.

Re: draft letter
As clarified above, a draft as desired would necessitate only when the PIO has intimated you the details of further fees as stipulated in Section 7(3)(a) on a date (Not your date of receipt of the intimation but the date the PIO has initiated such demand) beyond the prescribed period of 30 days from the date of receipt of your request for information by him.
In certain circumstances, when the PIO has not provided you the information requested by you and at the first appeal stage, when the AA order the PIO to provide the information also it has to be provided free of charge as the prescribed period is long over.
In all such cases, you can add a paragraph stating that " Since the information requested is not provided within the prescribed period it may now be provided free of charge in terms of Secion 7(6) of the Right to Information Act 2005" ( It has to be suitably worded on this line.)
