The public information officer has not accepted my Bankers Cheque
Ref: Use of postal stamp as a mode of payment of fee under RTI Act
I have submitted a Bankers Cheque (SBI), for the cost of RTI information documents for Rs 14/=. But the public information officer has not accepted my cheque. Please intimate what action taken against the public information officer.
Name: Rathinavel S
Email id: email@example.com
Please check whether Banker’s cheque is the prescribed mode of payment for the public authority concerned. (Link - http://www.rtifoundationofindia.com/payment-fee-1111 ). A complaint can be filed to the Information Commission for not accepting the fee which amounts to wilful denial of information. One can also claim compensation for any loss or detriment suffered.
