RTI library comes up at Chandigarh
A library of Right to Information (RTI) documents, touted as Asia's first, was inaugurated at Dwarka Das Library, Lala Lajpat Rai Bhawan at Chandigarh on the seventh anniversary of the RTI Act in the country. The library has been formed by Servants of People's Society in association with the Citizens' Voice and RTI Users' Association.
The library is planned as an open source depository of information collected under the RTI Act where anybody can become a member of this library free of cost and can also contribute documents which can be used by others. It is planned to upload the whole collection online within a few months. It is hoped that making documents public will help those who want to refer them for any use what-so-ever including research purposes.
