KALAHANDI:Orissa High Court orders Government of Odisha to notify for free information to BPL persons under RTI Act, hearing the writ petition filed by Dhoba Sahu of Kalahandi.

 

Based on the complaint of Kunja Bihari Patra of Dasapalla regarding information under RTI to BPL persons honorable Orissa High court had passed the order to give the information free of cost to BPL persons seeking information. But after a long time the Government of Odisha has neither notified it in the gazette nor amended the Odisha RTI rules in this connection.

Can any one just inform whether AP & T High Court has followed any such notification till now for BPL and still PIO insist that there is no exemption from RTI Fee for BPL citizens ?

Earlier, I have p[osted that Public authorities can only fix RTI fee and not empowered to charge when Act specified no charges in a separate section.

There was no reply/response.

Whether Orissa HC has itself specified exemptions for BPL or not I do not know.
