Dear Friends, I do agree that Indian Emabassies abroad are "Indian Territory" but where do you get the Rs.10/-postal order abroad and how to pay requisite fee in case you want any information? And as usual if they do not reply then where the complain or appeal against the Indian embassy could be lodged. As per my including millions of Indian living abroad to earn their livelihood consider Indian Embassies world over to be THE WORST and even Nepal Embassy is far far better than Our own Indian Embassy.

Infact Indian Embassies can be best suited to be renamed as Paasport Renewal Section Abroad and nothing more than that. If one is free to have his own way then only one treatment is suited to them by public at large and that is TO KILL.

Ask any Indian living abroad.

You can pay by DD. If they are not providing facility for deposit of fee in cash then you can complain to the CIC.

Hey Mr. Sudhir Kumar,

Where you get Demand Draft for Rs. Ten abroad which is not even fraction of a U.S. Dollar, Qatar Riyal, Omani Riyal, Bahraini Dinar or Kuwaiti Dinar? For Rs.Ten convertible the D/D fee may be hundred or thousands times more than what any body could imagine. Com'n sir dont just write anything even if it is free to express you opinion.

Thanx

How to deposit Rs 10/- with them is a matter of fact and not of law. Let him visit the website of  MEA. http://mea.gov.in/mystart.php?id=5009  Let him ring up the embassy and ask them what is the way to deposit fee there. Let him ask the bank how to get DD of Indian curency. There is no need of any case law. Indina embassies are very much part of Govt of india. They are not govered by the law of the receiving country.  In case they do not have any way to deposit RTI fee with them let him complaint to CIC as this amounts to lack of facility.
