    I guess, you need to have a re-look at Section 7 (5) & (9).

    Re: Charges for the scanned copies


    I think Mr.Karira is absolutely right. The key word is "information held". If the PIO is holding information in written/typed/printed form one can get only its photocopy. If it is held in digital form, one can get it only in CD. Converting the written/typed/printed form into digital form and vice-versa is likely to atract provisions of Section 7(9). Fee for each type is specifically given in the rules framed by the respective governments.

    Re: Charges for the scanned copies


    Er......Pardon me....I am new here but ...

    Instead of writing a 512kb file on a cd/dvd ...We could use a pen drive....


    Just a thought

    So will it be illegal for us to transform the document (scanning and typing) in a softcopy and post it on the internet?

    Because that is what i want to do

    The Act has provision for giving information in "any electronic form". But practically it all depends on how co-operative the PIO is.

    If the PIO is cooperative, he should not have any problems in allowing you to download the digitally held data onto your pen drive.

    Once a document is obtained under RTI, it is in the "public domain" and you can circulate it the way you want.

    Re: Charges for the scanned copies


    if i were the pio, i wouldnt allow providing any information on a pen drive, what with so many viruses in the wild. one cant really compromise with the security of the system. pio isnt obliged to provide info on a pendrive; is he?

    That is where the question of co-operation comes into picture. Regarding viruses, it is always possible to run an anti-virus scan.

    i can think of a hundred viruses which cannot be caught in a scan, depending upon the anti virus software one uses. there are a lot of adwares and malwares which are invisible to most anti virus softwares and are capable of stealing and passing on sensitive data when connected to internet. giving information is not the only thing the pio has to do. protection of the same information is also his lookout. and let me add, protection of sensitive information is also in public interest.
