Is the private sector ready to imbibe the RTI Act?
It has often been discussed whether the Indian corporates should be brought under the purview of the RTI Act. Most companies, whether public limited or otherwise, seem vary of the being engulfed by the Act. The Infosys Executive Co Chairman S Gopalakrishnan said at a CII event in Chandigarh “We are reluctant (that) we should be included (under the RTI Act)….. The RTI was created for a specific purpose to bring in certain level-playing field between citizens and the government… but to expand that… beyond that… we should be very careful.”
