RTI applicants paying Rs 500 for information from Allahabad HC

RTI applicants seeking information from Allahabad High Court are shelling out Rs 500 for each piece of information as the Uttar Pradesh government has not notified reduced fee recommended by the High Court in the Gazette. This came to light during a hearing at the Central Information Commission where Allahabad High Court officials conceded that they have reduced the fee rules but the state government had not notified it resulting in continuation of higher fee. According to RTI Act, public authorities can frame rules regarding fee.
