RTI now a common man’s tool: study as reported by Vidya Subrahmaniam, The Hindu, Oct 15, 2008 Study belies propaganda it is used by select social activists ----------------------------------------------------------------------- * Applicants closed down polluting factories, fought corruption * Villagers see information as key to solving problems ----------------------------------------------------------------------- New Delhi: An interim assessment of the Right to Information Act, 2005, undertaken independently, has concluded that more and more people are now using it in new ways, disproving the propaganda that RTI is an instrument handled only by select social activists. The first of its kind, the comprehensive study, conducted jointly by the National Campaign for People’s Right to Information (NCPRI) and the Right to Information Assessment and Analysis Group (RaaG), has been billed as a people’s initiative to assess who is using the Act and to what purpose. The study covered 10 States, besides Delhi. In their report, “The People’s RTI Assessment 2008,” the NCPRI and RaaG pointed out that so far all information on RTI was either anecdotal or derived primarily from government data. Nor was there any evaluation of how the Act impacted societal actors such as the media, courts, the corporate sector and non-governmental organisations. The NCPRI and RaaG conducted separate rural and urban surveys and also collected about 5,000 case studies from across the country, culled from the Hindi and English print media and downloaded from websites and blogs. A perusal of the cases showed that more and more people were invoking the Act, and for a variety of reasons. In many cases, the applicants went beyond securing answers to their questions. They closed down polluting factories, fought corruption, and formed themselves into a larger group to support one another. Internet users formed their own online support groups, and helped applicants fill applications. Specific examples of enlarging RTI: People in rural Karnataka combined campaigns for the Right to Information and the Right to Food to fight hunger. An 86-year-old Dalit farmer in Maharashtra used the RTI data to prevent his strawberry fields from drying up. In Uttar Pradesh, over 14,000 residents in a cluster of eight villages, 60 km. from Banda, used RTI to fight for their right to have roads, bridges and electricity. The surveys showed that an overwhelming majority of rural residents saw information as the key to solving village problems. More than two-thirds of rural respondents said they had received a response to their applications and nearly one-third said their problems had been solved though they had received no information or received only partial information. Among urban respondents, nearly three-fourths said they had received responses though they were slow in coming. Only a third of respondents said they had received responses within the stipulated one month. The Hindu : National : RTI now a common man’s tool: study
RTI implementation audit by students unveiled as appeared in Mangalorean.com | 29.09.08 Bangalore Sept 29: In a bid to involve youth in civic participation, Public Affairs Centre (PAC) brought together college students here to bring out the success level of Right to Information (RTI) Act. The Act envisages to bring about good governance and transparency in public administration. The study comes a fortnight ahead of the third anniversary of the realisation of the RTI Act and presents the Information Officers' perspective and their unique organisational experiences. These findings were presented by the students who conducted the study at an event held in the city yesterday. Mr K K Mishra, Chief Information Commissioner, Karnataka State Information Commission, presided over the event in which Mr Ralph Frammolino, Faculty, Indian Institute of Journalism and New Media, Prof Samuel Paul, Founder-Chairperson, PAC and Dr Gopakumar Thampi, Director, PAC participated. Speaking on the occasion, Prof Paul said RTI was a powerful and empowering tool. Unfortunately its awareness was very low. There was also limited information on implementation of this critical piece of legislation. ''With the youth constituting more than half of India's population, their active participation in the governance of the country becomes very crucial. This initiative is a very encouraging sign of youth involvement,'' he said. Elaborating on the study and key findings, Dr Thampi, Director, PAC, stated that the audit was conducted for a two-fold purpose -- to shed light on its implementation and to give the youth a hands-on experience -- by actively participating on governance-related issues.
