Thread: Cost of providing information?

  1. Re: Cost of providing information?


    The Pio will have to justify the exact nature of the additional costs. Overtime is just not a justified!
    yes, of course with justification.

    Manoj, the overtime cost has been quoted by Shri. Wajahat Habibullah in an off campus talks at a National academy at Ghaziabad on 30th March 2007 hence I treat it as authentic precedence.

    When used, should be appropriately understood with the information been sought which is concerned with the nature of the information.

    Re: Cost of providing information?


    trueblue,

    You mention:
    to hire some people to compile the information

    Can I ask you what is the information you have asked, for which the Dept. has to hire people ?
    The PIO cannot just ask you to pay for the information. He has to justify.

    States have rules made, which specify the charges.
    Are the charges being charged form you specified in the rules ?

    Please give details.

    recently the PMO directed not to collect charges incurred in conveying the information including the men employed for collecting information.
