In terms of modes of payment, one of the modes of payment is "cash".
Is a Money Order as good as "cash" ?
Karnataka SIC says so:
3. On issue of summons, the Respondent has filed a written submission dated
30.8.2007. Complainant’s representative states that the further fee sent though the money
order is nothing but cash as the postal authority delivery the cash only. Respondent states
that there is no provision in Karnataka Right to Information Rules, 2005 to pay the
further fee through money order. However, the Commission noted that the money order
sent by the applicant is as good as cash. Therefore, the Respondent should have accepted
the money order and should have provided the relevant information. Therefore,
Respondent wrongly rejected the request.
Full decision can be seen at:
Can members comment if anyone has experience of sending Money Order in lieu of "cash" ?
Did the PIO accept ?
Can we use this mode of payment in future ?
