I had applied for certain information under RTI act to minstry of steel. but it has been returned saying that fees can not be encashed as the same is not as per section 4 of RTI rules, 2005(Regulation of fee and cost). i have been asked to send fresh P.O. in name of accounts officer(designated officer) if i seek information under RTI.
Can't PIO of centeal government encash it? can't he/she still gather information and ask for fresh P.O. in reasonable time sot that it can be provided within in thirty days? (the danger in sending blank P.O. is possibility on getting a reply that no P.O. is received)
