Right to information RTI act

By prasannna-sudhakar Feb 22, 2014 350 Words
Common people got their right to raise question. It gives the power to throw question to the government directly

and the concerned authority has to reply back within 30 days with proper explanation. It gives every citizen a fundamental

right to seek information from any government department.
The Law is applicable to all constitutional authorities, including the executive, legislature and judiciary; any

institution or body established or constituted by an act of Parliament or a state legislature.
RTI Act not only covers the executives rather the judiciary and legislature are also under its strict regulations.

There is no gap in the process of formatting a corruption free and transparent government. It defines the term “public

authority” as the government is answerable to the supreme authority of common people.
The RTI Act specifies that citizens have a right to: request any information; take copies of documents; inspect

documents, works and records; take certified samples of materials of work; and obtain information in the form of

printouts, diskettes, floppies, tapes, video cassettes or in any other electronic mode.
