    In a democracy, it is the citizens who are the ultimate inspectors over and above their (police inspector's) work, and which is evident from the letter and spirit of section 2(j)(i) of the RTI Act, 2005


  • Our picks


      There are a large number of instances, where the State Information Commissioners are passing orders contrary to the spirit and object of RTI Act and contradicting the laid down procedures. Another issue is the Public Authorities did not comply the decisions of CIC/SIC and the Information Commissions are not strict about enforcing penal provisions under section-20. The Information Seekers feel they were pushed to the dead end. There is a common feeling that no appeal lies against the decision of State Information Commissioner. Let us examine it.

      Meghalaya's RTI Act in Braille is a hit
      Government of Meghalaya
      A training programme for the visually challenged in 2010 led to the idea of publishing the RTI Act
      in Braille; thanks to the enthusiasm shown by the participants. Ever since, it has helped this
      community to be pro-active in procuring information.
      In what can be termed as an 'inclusive initiative', the English booklet, 'Guide to the Right to Information
      Act 2005 for the Visually Impaired', has empowered hundreds of visually challenged citizens of
      Meghalaya to use the RTI Act for their personal grievances such as procurement of certificates required for education/jobs and soon.
      An initiative of the Legal Awareness Cell, Bethany Society and the Meghalaya Administrative Training
      Institute, the English book in all sections of the RTI Act. It also guides the reader on the procedure to file an RTI application and gives other tips.
      It all began in 2010, says Anita Kharpor, the former director of the Meghalaya Administration and
      Training Institute, who triggered off this novel initiative. Says she, way back in 2009 and 2010, we used
      to hold training programmes on human rights and other issues, for special groups. Once, we conducted a training programme for empowerment of the physically challenged and RTI was one of the topics, we found that they showed immense interest in the use of RTI. So, we invited them for a specific RTI workshop.
      Some of the visually challenged participants mentioned that they are unable to pro-actively use RTI as
      they are unable to read anything about it. Kharpor says she requested Carmo Northona, Executive Director of the Bethany Society, a prominent NGO, working for differently abled. Says she,'they transcribed the RTI Act in Braille, on our request. We printed 20 copies of the book. Since there was a further demand, we printed 100 more copies and they too were distributed, during the RTI workshops that we undertook in various districts'.
      Ever since the knowledge of the RTI Act, the visually challenged are filing RTI applications in Braille.
      The officers require a translator to understand the application and provide the required information.
