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


Dear Arun, Sidharth and Niladri,

At the outset may I say that I am delighted that our enforcement of the new posting policy has begun to show results -in the form of  focussed and trimmed mails.

The notified Central RTI (Fee and Cost) Rules are clear that the IPO is payable to the "Accounts Officer" of the Public Authority. (see Rules 3, 4 and 5).

Postal Orders are most convenient forms of payment for such applications .
Regretfully, most of the PAs do not specify in whose favour such IPOs are to
be made out .

Recently I sent a query to Passport Office, Ghaziabad , making the IPO payable to
PIO, Passport Officer

This was returned ( thankfully ! ) with the remarks, some 21 days later, that the
IPO be made payable to Passport Officer .

I feel that the best way to  get around this problem is not to specify the payee's name
on the IPO
