The Central Information Commission has been able to resolve almost 75 per cent of the total complaints/appeals received by using the Right to Information (RTI) Act.


The Commission disposed off about 45,000 cases over the last four years till February 2010, out of the total 60,000 odd cases filed, according to Mr Wajahat Habibullah, Chief Information Commissioner.


There has been an increase in awareness of the RTI Act which is evident from the sheer increase in the number of appeals received on a month-on-month basis.


“In the first year of the introduction of the Act we were receiving about 60-70 appeals in a month, which has now gone up to about 2,000/month,” Mr Habibullah said while speaking on the sidelines of an inter-active session organised by the Merchants' Chamber of Commerce here on Thursday.


The Commission, Mr Habibullah said, had been receiving complaints/appeals across a wide range of issues. “While we receive appeals pertaining to kerosene, ration card and land allocation from the poorer sections of the society, we have also been receiving appeals from affluent people pertaining to their ancestral properties or from members of political parties,” he pointed out.
