Re: [rti_india] Postal Order Vs Cout Fee Stamp in RTIs


Simple Answer : NO

Court Fee Stamp is not prescribed by Central Govt.

Postal Order should be payable to "Accounts Officer" of the Public Authority.

For more info plz see :

N.B. The above is applicable to Central PAs only. Different states
have different modes.
