Notes on Clauses:

Clauses 131 and 132 of the Bill seek to amend section 7 of the Indian Post Office Act, 1898 relating to power to fix rates of inland postage.

It is proposed to substitute the proviso to sub-section (1) of the said section of the said Act so as to provide that till the issuance of notification in the Official Gazette, by the Central Government, to fix the rates of postage and other sums of postal articles, in accordance with provisions of sub-section (1) of the said section, the rates set forth in the First Schedule shall be the rates chargeable under the said Act.

It is further proposed to omit sub-section (2) of the said section which is consequential in nature.
