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



Thanks for everybody's response.

I will take the suggetions of Dr Arun and Sanju.

In fact Sanju has already solved the problem in a wonderful way. In his words :


In my RTIs I leave the address field blank and in the application include some statement like 'Attached is the Postal order, number XXXXXXX. Since I am not sure of the designation of the appropriate CPIO, I have left the address blank in the Postal order. The application may be kindly be addressed to the designated PIO".

It has worked without hassles till now.



This is a great learning for me. Thanks everybody.
