Central and some state-governments have started accepting on-line RTI applications. But most of the population, especially less educated ones, and that too from rural areas are not internet-users. For benefit of that majority-section of public, post-free RTI applications addressed to central public-authorities should be accepted in all about 160000 post-offices in the country rather than presently in just 4500 post-offices.
Even a smallest post-office daily sends post-bags to head post-office with registered postal articles, cash and other revenue-items like unsold postage-stamps and postal-orders. This post-bag can carry post-free RTI applications addressed to central public-authorities.
