    does the each state is having their own RTI acts 2005 , dealing with their own state problems or it is the only one-in-one RTI Act 2005 for whole India?

  5. Re: Rally on Right To Information Act at Kancheepuram

    There is only one RTI Act for the entire country. This Act provides that every state shall have one state information commission to deal with implementation of RTI, appeals and complaints with regard to the Public Authorities in their respective states. For full details of their powers and functions, please read Chapter IV & V of the online RTI Act available in our portal.

    In addition to what Ganpat said, each State has separate "Rules", which prescribe charges, procedures, etc. But the basic ACT is only one.
    You can quote decisions of the CIC, as a citation in any state as well as the decision of one SIC, in another state.
