Thread: New National Rti Toll Free Helpline

  1. New National Rti Toll Free Helpline


    The new number will be (080) 666-00-999. This is operational from May 1, 2007. As earlier, the Helpline will offer information in three languages English, Hindi and Tamil and will be open seven days a week from 8 am to 8 pm.

    The shift has occurred because mphasis, a BPO company, has come forward to support the initiative by running the Helpline at a highly subsidised cost. The Helpline has received over 7500 calls to date from across the country.

    However, you can also go directly to RTI INDIA RTI Helpline and contact the RTI Activist directly.

    This is great. Do you know who is operating this help line? Has anyone tried to ask a question to the help line to see if they give accurate answers?

    I have not used it. This information in Indian Express newspaper of 29th April 2007 carried that more than 7500 people had used it. It is mentioned in my posting.

    The BPO company which is hosting the support is well reputed too.
