New Delhi, Dec 10: The Central Information Commission has directed the Railways to stop charging a whopping Rs 750 per page for photocopying and follow the rules of RTI Act which has fixed Rs two per page for such information.

Chief Information Commissioner Radha Krishna Mathur issued the directives on the plea of Raipur-based Prashant Katela who had sought a certified copy of travel certificate or TT report or any evidence that shows that whether two wait list passengers had travelled on a ticket or not.

During the hearing, Railways officials stated that Katela was asked to deposit copying fee Rs 750 for reservation chart as per Railway Rules but the appellant did not respond to that letter. Mathur said the copying fee Rules of the Railway Board were not consistent with the RTI Rules.

"The Railway Board is directed to take steps to amend the rules regarding copying charges suitably to bring them in conformity with the letter and spirit of the RTI Act and Rules," the CIC said.
