Subject: Re: [HumJanenge] UNJUST REJECTION OF RTI APPLICATION !
The PIO has erred grossly. The statute & rules there under spells out the amount
of minimum fees to be paid by the applicant. If an applicant sends a postal order
of higher denomination, the PIO can treat it either as charity to the government
or fee towards photocopies to be furnished. In the instant case, the applicant had
already mentioned in the application that the higher denomination PO was towards
photo copying. The rejection order is bad in law and the applicant must approach
the FAA with this prayer and seek the documents free of cost with prayer that cost
of photocopying be recovered from the PIO's salary. This will teach him a lesson
of the life time. Happy information seeking.

REJECTION OF RTI APPLICATION!
An Appellant sent an RTI
application to Deptt. of Excise, Delhi Govt. enclosing the postal order of Rs.
instead of Rs. 10/- without filling the payee column. Postal order of higher value
was sent to
cover the cost of photocopies of documents, if any, and this fact was mentined
in the RTI application also.
has rejected the application on the
grounds of postal order of higher demonition and for leaving the payee column
Though a fresh RTI
has been sent removing the aforesaid objections but I want to know if any
appeal can be sent to FAA or CIC for rejecting the appln on the above grounds.
