Hi,

 

I also read some where that we can left post order blank & crossed and let the authority to fill it. It was mentioned under section 5[3] of RTI Act 2005. Is it true? Would it give any chance to CPIO to reject the RTI?

Yes, you can enclose a blank IPO, by adding a note in the enclosure section of your RTI application, as given below:

 

Enclosed Herewith:

 

1. Indian Postal Order Bearing No. XXX XXXXXX of amount Rs. 10/-

 

Please Note: As I am not aware of the details to be filled in the “To Pay” & "At the Post Office At" sections of the enclosed IPO, I have left it blank. Therefore, I kindly request you to render reasonable assistance in-accordance with the letter & spirit of the provision of section 5(3) of the RTI Act, and thereby fill in appropriate details in the “To Pay” & "At the Post Office At" sections of the enclosed IPO.

Since you are seeking information of A P Govt, it is advisable to affix court fee stamp on application. This can be had from post offices or advocate or stamp vendor sitting near courts etc. Please refer:

One more suggestion for you, Before using postal order as RTI fee please check whether in your state PO is valid as RTI fee or not. Because under RTI each state can declare the valid modes of payment for RTI fee. Some state don't mention PO as mode of payment.

There is no need to attach any id or citizenship proof.

Just state at the beginning of the application that you are a Indian citizen.

Sir,

 

I sent it to PIO, Oriental Insurance co. ltd, Ambala Office as it is PIO for Haryana State.

I submit Rs. 10 IPO along with RTI application.

I filled column:

Pay TO as - PIO, Oriental Insurance co. ltd.

Name & adress as - my name and complete address

 

I kept column 'AT THE POST OFFICE AT' blank.

And they returned it saying i should fill it.

 

If they are not suppose to send it back.

Where can i complain about them.

 

Kindly guide.

It is PIO's moral duty to write post office name but he did not. So there is no any provision for complaint against him. Kindly file application again. Do not take it seriously.

Citizen's priority must be getting information. Has he returned entire RTI Application or only IPO ?

You can guess attitude of such CPIO. He can atleast put Rubber stamp available in his office . But he has returned it multiplying a simple task of writing some six letters. (Entering in despatch register, writing reason, writing your address on envelope, postage- and Rs.10/- IPO is itself a loss to Govt., as printing is costly when compared with cost)

1. The payee's name depends on the RTI Rules for Centre of the respective state.

For PAS under the Central Govt., it should be "The Accounts Officer, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX (name of public authority)"

 

2. IPO should be crossed...just like one crosses cheques.

It may be the format prescribed for Karnataka and Andhra.

In case of central Government, super moderator has given the correct laid down process of filling payees name in PO.

(I am afraid to defer with Hon CJK. The rules stipulate no such crossing.

The meaning of crossing is the instrument must be paid through Bank, which requires atleast 5 process involved in encashment.

In case without crossing, the PIO can just sign the receipt, and send it through any of the class IV employee to encash the same and the relevant Account Head has to be credited with such cash, mentioning the details of such applicants in one Challan.

This is just play it safe....both in terms of a mischievous PIO and a loss in transit.

 

Its my personal experience after facing such situations.

Sir,

This reply was given, as PIOs denied information stating that RTI fee is not payable in prescribed mode. According to many crossing is an addition and should be on insistence of such mode by payee. (It is altogether a different matter about explaining of their process in sending hundreds of rupees for sending those three or four POs at a time for encashment, they say that one if a Class IV goes on such work to the post office, we should forget his half day work + Actual costs reimbursement. I am not discussing on man hours lost in rupee terms. When for a Rs.10/- the total calculated loss in many counts is more than Rs.100/- to Govt, what is the purpose of charging such fees.)

      I had asked for the information from the superintendent of Post Office about details of my registered letter which I had booked 3 years before, but he has refused to give the information saying that he cannot give that information.
       
      He has not written why he cannot give that information. Should I go for appeal?

      F.No.PBA/06/149
      22nd September, 2006


       
       

      Appeal No.112 /ICPB/2006


      In the matter of Right to Information Act, 2005 – Section 19.
       

      Appellant: Shri Dhruba Charan Naik
      Public authority: Department of Post, Orissa Circle, Bhubaneshwar. The Sr. Supdt. of Post Offices & CPIO. Shri S.K. Kamila, Director Postal Services – Appellate Authority.
      FACTS:
       
      By an application dated 21.3.2006 addressed to the CPIO, the appellant has requested for information regarding percentage of marks obtained by the last candidate (category wise i.e. OBC/SC/ST) of selected candidates of open market for filling up vacancies of Postal Assistants/Sorting Assistants for the recruitment years 1994, 1995 and 1996 separately,
      pertaining to Sundargarh Postal Division. It appears that the CPIO declined to furnish the information and accordingly he appealed to the AA. By a decision dated 2.5.2006, the AA directed the CPIO to furnish the information sought for by the appellant and accordingly, the CPIO furnished certain information on 9.5.2006, which according to the appellant was incomplete and therefore, he filed an appeal before the Post Master General, who has advised him that the second appeal lies before this Commission and accordingly, the appellant has filed
      this appeal on 25.6.2006. Comments were called for from the CPIO in which the CPIO has furnished full information and it is also stated that similar information has been sent to the appellant. On receipt of the comments and reply, the appellant has written to the CPIO on 17.8.2006, seeking for certain clarification and endorsing a copy of the said letter, the appellant has sought time to file his rejoinder after receipt of clarifications from the CPIO.
       
      DECISION:
       
      From the reply furnished to the appellant as per the comments, I find that whatever information that the appellant had sought, the same has been furnished to the appellant. In his letter dated 17.8.2006 addressed to the CPIO, the appellant has not questioned the information
      furnished but has asked for not only additional information but also raised various queries un connected with the information sought and provided. A far as this appeal is concerned, since the information sought has been provided, the appeal stands closed.
       
      3. Let a copy of this decision be sent to the appellant and CPIO.
