    Default WEST BENGAL RTI RULES

    WEST BENGAL RIGHT TO INFORMATION RULES
    1. APPLICATION:

    Rules do not provide for a format for application under RTI Act. Format appended below can be used.

    2. FEES:

    A. Application fee: Rs.10/- to be paid by

    b. Indian postal order [IPO] favouring “[name of the bank] a/c Govt of West Bengal RTI Act”. IPO is available at post offices.

    Note: While affixing stamp/stamp paper is the best mode, applicants outside WB will have to pay by IPO. In that case it is difficult to get name of the bank from the SPIO [State Public Information Officer] concerned, who may not reply. Hence IPO may be made out in the name of ‘ACCOUNTS OFFICER, GOVT OF WEST BENGAL’ or name of the payee be left blank and SPIO be requested to fill-in the correct name.

    B. Other charges: Information in A-3 or A-4 size paper….Rs.2 per page, Large size: actual cost, publications: actual cost. Floppy or CD Rs.50/- per floppy/CD. Inspection: Rs.5/- each fifteen minutes or part thereof. These charges are to be paid by Demand drafts or IPO or cash
