Report No. 38
In section 45, the proviso states that a postal order should not be issued for an amount in excess of ten rupees. It has been suggested,1 that the proviso be deleted. The point was thus reiterated in the comment on the draft Report2-
"It is felt that the proviso to section 45 may better be removed, altogether, as that would make for great flexibility in bringing out postal orders in different denominations according to public demand."
The comment was not accepted in toto.3
It may not be desirable to delete the proviso, but the limit, of Rs. 10 may be replaced by Rs. 100. (Some limit must be there, in this respect4).
Necessary change is proposed.
1. S. No. 96 (Suggestion of the Department).
2. S. No. 169 (Comment of the Department).
3. As to postal orders see Rules 180A to 180E, Indian Post Office Rules, 1938.
4. Section 21(1), English Act, leaves the maximum amount to the Postmaster-General.
