    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.

    If any of the member has asked the questions (see post #12) please share the results with all of us here.

    Otherwise, I wish to file this application as Shri Karira has suggested if I do not hear any reply within one week from other members.

    post #14 is also interesting as the fraud is widespread and the total must be running into crores! Not a small fodder because IPOs are widely used for so many payments.

    The commission on IPO is 10% which is clearly written on the RIGHT SIDE below the Ashoka lions for Rs.5/- IPO they will write 50 paise and so on.As regards validity like banking operaton where the DD use yo have origionally 6 months and now 3 months validity and as per the IPO rules this must be the same as this is nothing but Banking transaction from Post office.If I come across relavent RULE OF THE postal Manual it will be given for the benifit of the members and as some friends mentioned in the counter they are collecting Rs2.per 10 Rs. IPO and Rs.1 per 5 Rs.IPO WHICH IS DOUBLE THAN THE PRESCRIBED AND SINCE NOBODY WILL GENERALLY SEE SO PARTICULARLY IT IS GOING ON UNDETECTED
