RTI to Quest for Transparency

If RTI was the primary drum for the earlier Government, 'Quest for Transparency' is for the new one. If one sees the trend, it is clearly towards 'Quest for transparency' then RTI. The CIC remains headless, financial powers of CIC is now with Secretary DoPT. IC's are representing for their fixation of seniority.   All what is means is downsizing of RTI and upscaling of 'Quest for Transparency', i.e. Proactive disclosure.

    • 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.
