    You can address you IPO to "Accounts Officer" and send the RTI Application by Registered AD.

    Please visit the Guide segment for further help.

    Just "Accounts Officer" will do.

    As per DoPT circular dated 23rd March 2007, Public Authorities are supposed to accept IPO's in favour of "Accounts Officer".

    Please see the full circular here:

    http://www.rtiindia.org/forum/3371-d...on-format.html

    Further, as per Item 24 of the circular of DoPT issued on 25th April 2008, even if a Public Authority does not have anyone by the designation of "Accounts Officer", it is supposed to designate some officer as "Accounts Officer" for the purposes of accepting fees under RTI.

    Acceptance of Fee
    24. According to the Right to Information (Regulation of Fee and Cost)
    Rules, 2005 as amended by the Right to Information (Regulation of Fee
    and Cost) Rules, 2006, an applicant can make payment of fee in cash or
    by demand draft or banker's cheque or Indian Postal Order payable to
    the Accounts Officer of the public authority. The public authority should
    ensure that payment by any of the above modes is not denied or the
    applicant is not compelled to draV•IPO etc. in the name of any officer
    other than the Accounts Officer. If any public authority does not have
    any Accounts Officer, an officer may be designated as such for the
    purpose of receiving fee under the RTI Act or rules made thereunder

    The full circular can be viewed at:
