While applying under RTI, may I have to pay the fees of Rs.10/- only once at 1st time or with subsequent applications to first appellate authority etc. Also?

I believe you have to pay it only once.

Only Rs. 10/- is the fee for RTI. No subsequent fees in appeal. However for receiving copy of any document, the PIO may demand Xtra @ rate of RS. 2.50/- per page.

You have to pay Rs. 10/- first time while applying and for subsequent first and second appeals the State SIC and Central CIC have specified charges. You have to pay accordingly. However no charge exceeds Rs. 20/-.

It depends on individual state rules.  Some states prescribed fees for First and second appeals also.  Search in google with key words RTI fees in the state of............................. or search in any public authority's website.

Many state governments and Central Governments except with first application, there are no fees for further first or second appeals.

For appeal you do not have to pay fee.


But for making any fresh application or seeking any mor einformation.  You have to deposit rs 10/- each time.
