    Is RTI counter producing corruption in retrospect


    Dear Informaticians,

    Recently one of my friend went to ask for some information from a Central Govt[office.There he was taken aback that some of the junior staff clerks dealing with the submission and procedures of RTI application demanded bribe that really stunning was surprised by his narrations, but eventually I thought that “Old Habits die hard”, either it is the Public who seeks the information or it’s the dealing Govt staff, we all have become part of the largely corrupting system. Here it’s not only the Official who are to be blamed, but Public is equally responsible.
    Therefore I strongly opine that “Is RTI counter producing corruption in retrospect” and Can RTI Act be misused to pressurize Govt Officials?

    THESE ARE GENERAL Questions, those come in the psyche of a person, seeking to know RTI Act better and better without any derogatory or conscious reasons.

    I think this will be very pertinent in coming times as the ACT shows it's teeth.

    Yes it is ....But than as I said earlier ...its no only the officer...But also the RTI applicant @ Indian citizen, who has to be equally blammed...

    Hope you all Agree that if there is no Public Responsiblity , the Public also has No Responsiblity

    Prasad & Abhinav,

    You have xerox copy in black and white.
    Here is a case where even CIC is aware about it:

    Right Karira

    and Its all those who have answered in NO, in the above Poll, let them know some more facts about the misuse...

    CIC asks applicants not to misuse RTI Act-India-The Times of India

    This is another

    But Informaticians lets not discuss the problem , but also lets put in some solutions...What can be done so that like other Acts , RTI should not become fertile for corruption and no seed can been sown to germinate later
