it's a rip-off!
students doing history or geography projects getting info from local authorities are being fleeced to get the info. recently a group of students went to kellie's castle for their history project, to get certain info they were told to pay - if not, sit there n copy!! want a map/ plan ? - pay! if not, copy!! the asking price? RM15 to RM20!!!! wonder if they're allowed to charge the students. n mind you, the rm15 is just for a photocopy of the plan of the castle!!!! wonder how long this has been going on? shouldn't all this historical info be given free or maybe a nominal sum can be charged for the trouble or for the photocopy- wouldn't rm 1 to rm2 suffice?
