[rti_india] Re: IPO commision


Dear Raja

As you know this group is not like other RTI groups. If you want a conventional answer you can read this

In my view you are a baby. What is worse is that you are a cry baby.
The RTI Rules generally allow you to pay in cash, bankers cheque (ie. D/D, LPO) and now by IPO.

Is there any rule / law which says that IPOs of all denominations must always be in stock at each and every post office of the country? In the absence of any statutory obligation of the Post Office to keep IPOs of each and every denomination available just so that people like you can file RTIs from any post office in India, it is always open to you to use one of the other forms of payment if you have a problem with IPOs.

The charging a Rs 1 commission per IPO is perfectly reasonable. The Postal dept incurs a cost of Rs 3 for every small denomination IPO it sells. So the more RTIs Mr Raja Bunch files the greater is the burden on honest taxpayers and responsible RTIers.

The Court fee example is irrelevant. Virtually all small value court fee stamps in the country are fake (Telgi) and go directly into the pocket of the vested interests.
