Information is sellable in form of reports for business purposes. Government introduced Right to information act to provide information useful for individual clarifications. The reason may be a discussable or yet to thinkable area.
Right to information in India came into force on 12 October 2005. This initiative started from the Freedom of Information Bill in Parliament, in 2002. Citizens have the right to get information from government authority within 30 days. Technology enhances this act and supports the government to equalize the documents. Official Secrets Acts (1923) restricted the information disclosure before this act came into force.
RTI is governed by Central Information Commission and State Public Information Officers. Digital governance is also one of the main progresses for this system. Application, fees in form of DD or cheque are the basic requirements. Misleading information will lead to penalty. Jammu and Kashmir is the exemption for this act.
RTI started in Sweden (1766) then followed by Norway, US, Netherland, Australia and in 2010 more than 85 countries enjoying the gratitude. Mexico fixed a standard example and reference for this act.
UPA government made the progressive for RTI. Every government says error on other government policies. This act is also not an exemption. Practically Implementation is the problem and “Confidential” is the word used for most of the replies or answers. Some small percentage information which is attractive only published in media. This act needs to break the formality and come from the document grade.
