RTI is misused, and that's all the more reason why this law should not be weakened: Shailesh Gandhi

Highlight: The data that India rank's No.5 in strength of RTI Act, and No.66 in implementation.

The issue to be decided is who is responsible for such implementation and action taken for better implementation.

Unfortunately, no one is coming out with better constructive suggestions, and DOPT is reduced to just confining themselves to interpreting RTI Act and never bothered about proper implementation.

Every one accuses of Act being misused, as though this Act was alone being misused, and there is no record as to in how many cases it was actually misused and such percentage in total cases. Just making guess is not sufficient.

      BBMP (Municipal council of Bangalore) does not take either postal or Online R.T.I queries.
      Since there is no accountability, the roads are in disarray and no action has been taken. Now with this covid19 pandemic, these fellows are just sitting and eating peanuts.
      Several compliant either to the BBMP app, P.M.O office or the local M.L.A/MP have fallen on deaf ears.
      Has anyone succeeded in resolving roads via the R.T.I route or some other route?

      I had sought details of loan and copies of agreement entered with World Bank, JICA etc. of IT Expressway Chennai (created in partnership with Govt of TN) However the PIO has replied that they have moved out of world bank loan and taken loan from other banks details of which cannot be disclosed under 8(1) d of RTI Act citing "commercial confidence".
      However the IT Expressway is a public limited company having entered into agreement with Govt of TN and others for developing and maintaining a particular stretch of road.
      Kindly help me frame a good first appeal.
