  1. Re: India less Corruption now

    let us all make a momentum to force the bureaucrats to provide each and every information asked for, and prevent them from taking shelter behind any act ot excuse, and remember information delayed results in justice delayed.

    Defeat is not final when you fall down. It is final when you refuse to get up.

    Atleast 5 to 10 % of people in every village or town should be trained to use RTI and ask questions before 31.12.2008. to achieve corruption-less india

    Recent statement of CIC, that OSA is no more a law, is significant, and now its time that bureaucrats are mde to understand not to hide informations from the people, and also there should be severe penalties for hindering the people from getting information, and those should be applied in every case. There should be no fee for obtaining information pertaining to oneself.

    We are on the way of less corruption and RTI will provide speed it if impemented as enacted. At present the implementation of RTI is not being made as enacted.

  8. Re: India less Corruption now

    The RTI Act can surely reduce the corruption. But the biggest problem is that the apex bodies under the RTI Act i.e. Information Commissions are being manned by the bureaucrats. They are habitual in keeping the information secret. Moreover, it is seen that the Commissions have failed badly in imparting their duties. The imposition of penalty is mandatory under the RTI Act, but the Commissions very rarely impose the penalty. (Kindly see the thread "Whether imposing a panalty a prerogative ?" It seems that the Commissions have also been biased while imposing the penalty as most of the penalties are being imposed where the non-bureaucrats are at fault (although I have no data at present to support this) If they start imposing penalty impartially, only then the RTI Act will be effective and will be helpful in reducing the corruption.
