Focus On Act Rightly Right To Information Act

By Preeti Sigh On 07 Mar, 2018

Twelve years after it was set up under the Right To Information (RTI) Act, the Central Information Commission has a new address -- a five-storey environment friendly building in south Delhi, fitted with information technology and video conference facilities. Earlier, the highest appellate authority for RTI complaints used to function from two rented accommodations. "The greatest asset of a democracy is an empowered citizen. Over the last 3.5 years we have created the right environment that nurtures informed and empowered individuals," said Prime Minister Narendra Modi who inaugurated the new premises. At a time when activists have accused the government of holding back information, PM Modi said like the RTI Act, serious attention should be paid to "Act Rightly". "Many times it has been seen that some people misuse the rights given to the public for personal gains. The burden of such wrong attempts is borne by the system". Activists say the government is yet to walk the talk on transparency, and anti-corruption laws await proper implementation.
