RTI Act is in force since 2005, every year many students from CBSE, UPSC, etc are applying for certified copies under the RTI Act, 2005, at Rs.2 per page. But, ICAI has been denying the requests from candidates and compels them to seek their answer sheets as per ICAI procedure which provides for the cost of Rs.500/- per subject.  if a CA Final student desires to apply for certified copies of all the 8 subjects, he has to incur Rs. 4,000/- (Rs.500 per subject × 8 subjects) which is more than the Examination fee i.e., Rs. 3,300/-
