Payment of fee under the RTI Act by Indian Postal Order

One of the approved modes of payment of fee under the RTI Rules, 2005 is through Indian Postal Order. It has come to the notice of authorities that some public authorities do not accept fee through the Indian Postal Orders. On this, Central Govt. has clarified some time back that refusal to accept fee through the IPO may be treated as refusal to accept the application. It may result into imposition of penalty by the Central Information Commission on the concerned Central Public Information Officer under Section 20 of the RTI Act, 2005.

Thank you for information. Such practice must be discouraged for effective implementation of RTI. There are some quarters who are against the act.
