Subject: Information under RTI Act.
School of Open Learning, University of Delhi is a well reputed organisation of India. It is providing quality education through distant learning. Millions of students get benefited from this School. There seems to be a procedural lapse. While raising demand for examination it prefers demand draft of any branch of SBI only. In such situation students have to rush SBI only. Compelling this condition parents of many students have to get DD from SBI, though they are having account in some other bank. It is understood that SOL is accepting demand drafts other than SBI also. If so then this information should also be given in demand letters.
In such a situation kindly provide me the following information under RTI Act.
1. “Does School of Open Learning” is accepting demand drafts from students drawn on any scheduled bank towards demand.
2. If yes, then why in demand letter it is shown as “Student will have to pay the above amount as shown in the grand total, through Demand Draft from any branch of SBI only. The Draft should be in favour of The Executive director, SOL, University of Delhi payable at Service Branch of SBI New Delhi”.
3. If not, then justification for not accepting demand draft from any scheduled bank.
4. Copy of Order showing requirement of demand draft for in favor of “The Executive director, SOL, University of Delhi payable at Service Branch of SBI New Delhi”.
Thanks & Regards,
