All the contents appearing in the site have been written, compiled, and collected by Dr. (Mrs.) Anuradha Verma to which this site owes its thanks.

She is a post graduate in Zoology and her PhD thesis work “Impact of Tourism on the Ecology and Large Mammals of Pench National Park” has been widely acclaimed.

Her column “DATE WITH RTI” is perhaps the longest running regular column on the subject which debuted in the year 2008 in the site whispersinthecorridors.com. This column discusses one CIC order every Monday and is also a part of the monthly magazine by the same name.

Her recent book “PIO’s guide to RTI” has been published in September 2011 by the same publisher and has been well received by the readers. She has a new dimension to the RTI Act by analysing it from different angles based on the need of the users thereby giving a sectoral look to it.
