RTI here is a mail chain about RTI recent press release. Even I was part of this initiative in analysis of the RTI requests of previous years that went till CIC level.

Yes Harinath, well said. There is a lot that needs to be done. This report is specifically to highlight the govt apathy towards popularizing this. We need a larger debate. We are planning a panel discussion on this report towards the month end. I will keep you all informed.

Till then , kudos to all of you who made this report possible and put in those hours.

Lets create awareness.

Cheers
Rakesh

Hi Rakesh,
I read the news morning itself. I was held up in something else and missed attending this session.
Yes, there is lot of work still pending in improving the awareness on RTI.
I found RTI as a singlepoint solution for many things.
one example:
our colony people have been struggling to get few basic things done by GHMC for the last few years. they even met Sabita indrareddy (minister and MLA for our area) and GHMC commissionr and some HUDA top brass, collectors etc
But we didnt see any happenings, but recently i encouraged my colony people to file RTI requests along with me and when GHMC people saw bulk of requests, south zone commissioner told us that our colony parks will be protected from encroachments. he gave us date commitment for implementation. His only request was to avoid RTIs. He said if GHMC people start working on responding to RTI, they may not be able to do their normal works, hence they resolve pending issues to avoid more RTI requests.
While the works are still pending, but there is a momentum and my colony people are happy about it.
Also I have few requests in 2nd appeal with CIC, awaiting call from them.
Thanks
Harinath

There are only two options,
Either 'you Change' or 'Change the system'

I chose the second one!!!!
