Right to Information Act, 2005 empowers every Indian citizen, regardless of gender, caste, and creed, to have the right to question any of the functionalities, services, and projects of the performing government. However, although there are certain limitations, it has a reasonable reach to solve the day-to-day problems of the common man. With the exception of Jammu and Kashmir, the 2005 Right to Information Act applies to all of India. That state has its own form of the RTI Act called the RTI Act of Jammu and Kashmir. One can obtain access to data about anything, any service, any project except for some problems that may trigger safety problems such as personal details, and data about third parties.
The Right to Information Act, 2005 is enforced by requiring the official to respond within a specified period. They cannot delay it further and cannot dispose of the application until a satisfactory resolution has been provided. Many times the Right to Information Act has been a very strong instrumental in the operation of government to carry out multiple frauds and hidden problems. It can make Indian Citizen’s fundamental right a truth.
Now you can file an online and offline application for the right to information. While online RTI application filing service is only accessible to departments of central government and associated ministries including PMO, India’s Controller and Auditor General, the President’s Secretariat, and the Vice President and Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Secretariat.
