    Default Re: validity of indian postal order


    I still am unable to rely on this as this does not show that any Notification was issued to implement it . Plz see last few lines of the document .
    Around one month back I was in PO for getting redeemed a few unused IPOs . During a discussion with the Post Master I requested him to show me the rules relating to IPO . It was then that I gathered the Information noted in post #6 .
    I am unable to trace this circular which is dated year 1995 .

    I have got hands on this : Welcome to Maharashtrapost.org : An Official Website of India Post - Maharashtra and Goa

    Many post offices and postal officers/staff are themselves unaware. My local post office also said 6 months. Then I showed them the print out. It took about a month for them to clarify but finally they confirmed that it is 2 years. They did not want to give it to me in writing.

    IPO is issued by the Postal Department - the same all over India, irrespective of the State.

    Maybe, someone can file a RTI to the Postal department and get it in writing.

    While a reply to above query is still awaited Department of Post have revealed that there is no increase in commission rates for IPO's and only the commission for IPO upto Rs.10/- were raised to Re.1/- in the year 1999.
    All these years I was paying commission @10% on IPO of value Rs.50/- that is the fees for filing RTI application in Haryana.
    There is a standard practice to cut across the printed commission rate of Rs.2.50 printed on the IPO and write Rs.5/-.
    No idea who ordered this change in tariff and where this increased tariff is going.
