Using Post Offices to submit RTI applications

From: C N Kumar 


I wanted to send an RTI application to the Railways and the Civil Aviation Department 
both of which are based outside Bangalore and are under the Central Government.

I remembered what Mr Veeresh Malik had told me earlier and did the following:

1. I went to the GPO along with my RTI application which had the name and full address 
    of the PIO and remitted a sum of Rs 10 to account UCR-miscellaneous ( Unclassified 
    Receipts- Miscellaneous). You can do this at any designated head post office.

2. I affixed the receipt for Rs 10 to the RTI application and handed it into the APIO 
    at GPO.

3. She acknowledged my application and has agreed to send me a copy of the letter 
    forwarding my application.

4. The application will be sent free by the P&T Department by registered post.

I thought I would share this with you so that you can adopt the procedure.

Best regards
