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


The precription by law is one thing, its implementation absolutely
another .

1.The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India requires IPOs to be
made out to Secretary, ICAI

2. The Passport Office in Ghaziabad insists IPOs be made out in the name
of "Passport Office"

The Senior Superintendent of Police in Noida requires that IPOs to be
made out to SSP, District Gautam Budh Nagar

The UP CM Secretariat in Lucknow directs that IPOs to be made out in
the name of PIO, CM Office

Thus we can see that there is no uniformity and the all the directions
issued by DoPT in this regard are

simply ignored .

At how many places, Central and State PIOs can we fight to follow the
prescribed directions ?

only for the Rs.10 application fee but also for the further fees which
may be very substantial. If you go through the records of this group you
will find many instances of blank IPOs being returned by PIOs.
