    To be honest, there is no sincerity towards implementation of RTI Act in any stake holders. Getting a good decision is more a luck.

    What were the side effects ? You mean harassment of RTI Applicant ? It is quite normal and expected as retaliation, and in view of all these we always advise applicants to step into RTI, expecting such indirect harassment. Applicant must be competent, and the drafting should be most deftly, and PIO should think twice before resorting to such steps against applicant. Generally, those who are confident of facing such measures from PIOs, step into the field. Authorities accuse applicants as black mailers and attribute motive of extortion, but they do not hesitate to search for loop holes or use the system against citizen, and when all those fail, they branch the applicants as a nuisance.

    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.

    If the information is urgent and important immediately pay the fees under protest. Address a simple letter to SPIO, making a copy to FAA. and SIC. To ............................ .......................... Dear Sir, Reg: SIC Decision No...............................dt............................ Appellant:...................................... Ref: Demand for copying fees letter No.....................dt.................................. 1.I invite your attention to Sec. 7 (6) that states as follows: (6)Not withstanding anything contained in sub-section (5) the person making request for the information shall be provided the information free of charge where a public authority fails to comply with the time limit specified in sub-section (1) Sub section (1) prescribed time limit of 30 days. RTI application was filed on.................... SIC decision was on.................... Demand from SPIO was on. 2.SPIO demanding such fees is in violation of the Sec. 7 (6) is not legally proper. However the postal order for Rs.72/- is enclosed under protest keeping in mind the importance and urgency of information. Yours faithfully, ........................ Encl: PO No:..............for Rs.72 drawn as per SPIO directions. Copy to FAA and SIC: With a request to direct SPIO for providing of information free of cost as per Sec. 7 (6) and for returning of the postal order for Rs72/ submitted by applicant under protest. This is all formal and generally appellants do not prolong and irritate authorities by educating them about RTI Act as information is always the priority, and citizens are paying to their own Government, the actual copying expenses of nominal amount.

    @Rajesh Kumar. You have intruded into another post not relevant to your matter. Unless members are aware as to the information solicited, provided, denied by PIO, it is not possible to offer precise guidance. As you have already filed second appeal, just mention the grounds of second appeal in a polite manner, when IC permits you to submit your version. Be polite. There is nothing to be worried though the public authority is from Supreme court. Just confine to your grounds of appeal only.

    1.RTI Act has not stipulated any time limit for filing complaints and the rules state "Complaint should be filed within reasonable period", what is reasonable has to be decided by IC. and in the forum, so far no one has complained about rejection of complaints by IC. 2.Please go through Sec.18, First appeal is not required for making complaint. (Remember that a complainant is not entitled for information from PIO, he can only pray for penalty against PIO and which is once again the discretion of IC, and in less than .5% of complaints, IC has decided to levy the penalty.

    Now that you have enclosed all duplicate documents as required by CIC, after 15 days file RTI Application and seek information on action taken on your letter dt.3-6-18. You can also down load the delivery status of your Regd post through India post website now, as it might have been delivered . You can search website of CIC for details of the fresh number if any given to your letter dt.3-6-18 in complaint/appeal status in CIC website. You have done what was needed by CIC, and except waiting for further response, nothing can be done further.
