Launch of Electronic Indian Postal Order - eIPO
On the initiative of Department of Personnel and Training, Department of Posts has launched a service called “elPO” (Electronic Indian Postal Order) w.e.f 22.03.2013.  This is a facility to purchase an Indian Postal Order electronically by paying a fee on line through e-Post Office Portal i.e., http://www.epostoffice.gov.in.  It can also be accessed through India Post website www.indiapost.gov.in. As per RTI Rules, 2012, fees may be paid by electronic means, if facility for receiving fees through electronic means is available with the public authority.
This facility is provided for Indian Citizens across the globe (abroad as well as in India) to facilitate them to seek information from the Central Public Information Officers (CPIOs) under the RTI Act, 2005.  Debit and Credit cards can be used to purchase elPO.
The user needs to get himself/herself registered at the website.  He/She has to select the Ministry/Department from whom he/she desires to seek the information under the RTI Act and the elPO so generated can be used to seek information from that Ministry/Department only.  A printout of the elPO is required to be attached with the RTI application.  If the RTI application is being filed electronically, elPO is required to be attached as an attachment.
This facility is only for purchasing an Indian Postal Order electronically.  All the requirements for filing an RTI application as well as other provisions regarding eligibility, time limit, exemptions etc., as provided in the RTI Act, 2005 will continue to apply.
An elPO so generated must be used only once with an RTI application. To check any multiple use of the same eIPO, the Public Authority shall maintain a record of the eIPO so received. Please see the website http://www.epostoffice.gov.in for more information.
