The proposal to consider and reference to the committee was wrongly reported in several prominent news papers as acceptance of postage stamps as RTI fee.

It was just a proposal referred to a committee and the committee rejected the proposal and govt., accepted their recommendation.

The proposal to accept postal stamps was permanently shelved and postal stamps can not be used as RTI fees. Please educate to new members, who are under wrong impression with such news paper reports.

Dear Rathavaji, kindly read the decision carefully. CIC has simply recommended for postal stamp and related lines of decisions are reproduced below.

 

"The*Commission*strongly*recommends*Department*of*Personnel*and*Training*to*adopt

the*one*year*old*proposal*of*the*Department*of*Posts,*which*is*very*user*friendly*and

avail*the*opportunity*of*giving*New*Year*Gift*to*the*citizen*by*permitting*and*publicising

setting*out*the*practical*regime*of*right*to*information*for*citizens*to*secure*access*to

information."*

 

But it was rejected.

government wants payment of certain fee to the exchequer and whether it is through postal /revenue stamps / court fee stamps or IPO in any case they realise the required money but if it is normal postal stamps then there will be scarcity of such stamps for normal postal work as the RTI activists all over the country , they consume bulk and thus the government did not favour with this proposal.

The Postal Act does not allow use of postage stamps for any other purpose, except postage.

If the Government wants, it can make special stamps like Central Recruitment Fee Stamps being sold by Postal Department. With reduction of postal business, the infrastructure and manpower is being used for other commercial activities, like Banking, Insurance, Railway Ticket Booking etc.

The objections by Committee are on accounting. Now post offices are doing many jobs including MOS for Prasadam of TTD, Bhadrachalam and TTD Darshan. Selling of stamps of RTI and treating them as heavy consumption is absurd, as applicants are not that many.

(The objections are not from Postal dept.,.Infact they can accept Money orders also, which is more convenient to all. Committee has not looked into MO angle)

i definetely agree with Sri.Karira that some special stamps can be printed of Rs. 5 and 10/-and can be supplied along with normal postal stamps/ envelops.

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
       
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.

      Hello,
      I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society.
      The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is:
      1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information?
      2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I?
      3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 
      4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt?
      Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.
