requisition fee under the Right to Information Act.

This is by the gazette notification of the Department of Personnel and
Training (DoPT) dated May 17, 2006.

This might have escaped the attention of most of us, but thanks to the blog
by mr v m kumaraswamy we know about it now


“…The act also prescribes a fee of Rs 10 as application money for getting
information. According to Gazette notification of Sep 16, 2005 for providing
the information under sub-section (1) of section 7, the fee shall be charged
by way of cash against proper money receipt or by demand draft or bankers
cheque payable to the account officer of the public authority and as per the
gazette notification of May 17, 2006 IPO is also permissible… ”

As you are aware, the beginning was made by Karnataka government, thanks to
the efforts of our colleagues there. Now we have to get this included in the
rules of all states.
