Who are we?

We are a group of professionals who have keenly observed the RTI Act, 2005 from its conceptualization stage and have been actively involved in spreading its awareness amongst all sections of the society. We are pioneers in providing excellent quality literature in the field of RTI and have now come up with a portal to bridge the gaps that exist between the intention and interpretation of the RTI Act. We shall be providing critical information, analyses, expert viewpoints, editorials and related news on developments related to the Act. Over the years, the RTI Act has witnessed a dramatic rise in usage and therefore, a need has been felt for an easily accessible dynamic medium which can present the interpretation of law and the current happenings to all. This site intends to fill this vacuum.

We undertake interactive awareness programs to promote the use of RTI Act in all fields. We indulge in dissemination of information through lectures, seminars, distribution of literature and other help to a citizen. These programs range from creating a basic level of awareness and extend to giving a thorough knowledge of the Act. RTI Act should not be restricted to merely seeking or obtaining information and a more innovative use of the Act helps in creating an environment where all citizens can work in harmony for the progress of the nation.

Bureaucrats are not born from nowhere – they come from the society and no doubt, are a part and parcel of it. Just as the clap requires two hands, an applicant and a Public Information Officer have to work in unison for the success of the RTI Act. Our training programs focus on bringing a better perception of the legislation among the officers who are implementing the Act while discussing their role and responsibilities. A strong stress on the Pro-active disclosure by the authorities is foremost in our strategy which not only avoids work-load of applications for a PIO due to availability of information in the public domain, but prevents the inconvenience of filing an application by the citizen. We specialize in conducting workshops and training programs for the public servants with examples from real life situations. We believe that True democracy is not possible until the majesty of the individual Citizen is recognized by giving due respect to the rights of the individual Citizen. Till the power is put directly into the hands of the foundation of democracy - the Citizen, who can use it without the necessity of being a part of a group or association - participative democracy is not possible. We feel privileged to be a part of the learning curve of a citizen as he realizes how he can single handedly have an impact on governance structure.

We encourage the use of RTI in all spheres like environment, public health, education, women and child welfare etc with emphasis on making the RTI Act a success wherein both the applicant and the public authorities are common stakeholders.
