    My First success with RTI


    Finally, my first success using the RTI Act !

    I wanted to file 2 applications under the RTI Act.
    The concerned PIO refused to accept my application fee in cash.
    The departments website clearly stated the application fee can be paid by Cash or Bankers Cheque or D/D.

    So for good measure, apart from the 2 applications I wanted to file, I filed a third one regarding this matter of cash payment. I had to spend some time in drafting the application correctly so that it sounded like a genuine application under RTI.

    Today, just when 30 days were about to expire, I got a reply from the PIO. They have said that "arrangements are now being made to receive application fee in cash hereafter"




  2. Good work Karira!


  3. Great Work Karira

    Re: My First success with RTI



    Well, this was only a success story as far as receiving the reply.

    The Public Authority in question is still not accepting cash for the application fee inspite of over 4 months having passed after agreeing to do so.
    The website continues to state that application fees for RTI applications will be accpeted by cash, D/D or B/C.
    What can I do now ?
    Please guide me.

    Pl. send a money order.If it is central govt, I always prefer IPO which cost 50 paise only. In Gujarat U can get Rs.20/- stamp franked in nominated banks with no extra charges. I have made a practice to send by speed post/regd ad, because if one visits personally, the officers act indifferently.

    The commission for IPO is Re. 1.00 for a Rs 10.00 IPO. That is what I paid in Secunderabad, Nehru Nagar Post Office, on 8th January 2008. Any change in the charges since then ?

    On the IPO they have mentioned 50 paise, perhaps old stationery. They are actually charging Re1/-. I stand corrected.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.
