It may result into imposition of penalty by the Central Information Commission on the concerned Central Pubic Information Officer under Section 20 of the Act. All the pubic authorities should, therefore. ensure that payment of fee by IPO is not denied.

3. Contents of this OM may be brought to the notice of all concerned.
