When the applicant has received such demand stating the calculation of such fees for copying, being the demand is perfectly in accordance with laid down law, there is no use in going for unnecessary correspondence wasting time and money.  RTI Act is simple act.  Go through the Act as the sections are very few relevant to your doubts.

I presume that you wanted soft copies of information.  PIO is supposed to provide the information as available in his records.  In other words, if the information you have solicited is in hard copies, PIO has to provide that information as xerox copy only and not through scanning and converting the information in digital form to suit your convenience.  If it is available in soft copy, you have to pay for the Compact disc charges stipulated .  If it is not available in digital form, you can never get that information through on line PDF under RTI Act.  You have to accept the form in which it is available with PIO.

Remember that applicant should always avoid unnecessary correspondence, which wastes our time, energy, money and when the amount demanded is less, better to pay that amount and get information, as information is the focus and we are paying actual charges to our own Government.  This is my opinion and which I practically learnt , some members may differ with me stating stipulations in RTI Act and to prove PIO wrong, protract the correspondence to establish that appellant is right and PIO is wrong.  But as common men, we have endeavour to cut short the time and get information without spending extra money on postage, typing , stationery and loss of mental peace.
