I am working in DIPP as a group A officer. I want to resign from my current post. While submitting the resignation my AO/HO are not giving me the acknowledgement/receiving. To enquire about the rule, I filed an RTI in the Department of Administrative Reforms and Public Grievance. In the reply, they said that they are not in position to supply any information in this regard, as they are not having any such order. Although I know that if I will submit my resignation through registered post, they had to acknowledge it. But now because of curiosity, I wanted to know whether there is any such government order/court decision regarding the compulsory practise of providing the acknowledgement/receiving for any document submitted to your office (AO/HO)? Because in most of the offices I have seen this practise of providing the reciving even for a leave application. Please answer.
