With every post you shall see small Social icons as shown in the screenshot below:
If you’re a RTI INDIA novice, hashtags — those short links preceded by the pound sign (#) — may seem confusing and unnecessary. But they are integral to the way we communicate online both at RTI INDIA as well as on other social media like twitter, facebook, Instagram e.t.c., and it’s important to know how to use them. Plus, they can be a lot of fun.
On RTI INDIA, the pound sign (or hash) turns any word or group of words that directly follow it into a searchable link. This allows you to organ

Enactment of RTI ACT 2005 became the first recorded instance of participatory Law Making in India. In 1996 National Campaign for People's Right to Information (NCPRI) prepared the first ever civil society draft of the right to information (RTI).

In a major shift of displaying the number of users at the website, we have stopped showing the total number of users, instead we have started showing Actual number of verified members only.

The idea is to show only the verified members.

Why is verification important?
Let people know it's really you. Your profile badge will be upgraded to Verified so that others know that your comments are truly from you.
No impersonators! Verifying your email prevents others from using your email address when posting on sites using Disqus Comments.
Your comments won't get stuck. With a verified profile, your comments will be less likely to get stuck in moderation or in the spam filter.

This was a terrible trip for me to New Delhi. I had a plan to buy a good pair of shoes this time when the ministry called me up for a meeting. I was very enthusiastic to hear that delhi is running with sale and every shop owner would oblige you with a hefty discount.
The day I ended up with official session, I landed up in Shipra Mall hoping to get my pair of shoes. To my surprise, they did not had any for me. I ended up the whole two days at 2 other Malls, South Extension, Khan Market, Ansal
a very important topic that needs to be discussed more actively in modern society. I am always for the security of relationships, always for them to be as comfortable as possible for the two parties, to cause only positive emotions.

Sir, existance of cooperative society on the govt will be very important in deciding cases of numerous such mushrooming socieites by political leaders getting works exclusively from the govt without any tendering at double the prevailing rates.
In my humble opinion, this judgment can be useful in such mushrooming socieites.
As per Revision petition of full bench of NSCRDC "RTI Applicant is not a consumer" and SC has refused to entertain RP. There is no scope for considering RTI Applicant as consumer as the NSCRDC decision is final. No Consumer forum entertains any such complaint from RTI Applicant.

New Delhi: Delhi High Court has ruled that vehicles of India’s top constitutional authorities like the President, the Vice President, Governors and Lieutenant Governors will have to be registered with the authority. According to the ruling, all vehicles need to clearly display the registration numbers. A petition, filed by an NGO Nyayabhoomi, claimed that the practice of displaying the state emblem, instead of the registration numbers, make the dignitaries become easy targets for terrorists and anyone with malicious intent.
In December last year, the Delhi High Court had asked the Centre and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the national capital to place before it the rules regarding display of just the State Emblem of India on the cars of the constitutional authorities and dignitaries, such as the President, instead of their registration numbers, PTI had reported.
The petitioner also sought direction to the Delhi government and Delhi Police to seize the cars used by the Rashtrapati Bhawan, Vice President, Raj Niwas and Protocol division of the Ministry of External Affairs for not being registered under the Motor Vehicles Act, PTI reported.
After the petition was filed, a bench of acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar had directed both the governments to check the position and inform it about the same.
The plea was based on an RTI response by the Ministry of External Affairs which stated that none of its 14 cars maintained were registered.
Last year, the Rashtrapati Bhawan had refused to provide the registration numbers of all the presidential vehicles on the ground that disclosure of such information would endanger the security of the state and life of the President.
