    In discussion some officer I reached on conclusion that only selfish officers not favouring RTI. One officers suddenly started discussion with me regarding RTI without knowing about me. I enquired him the problem to implement RTI.
    1.He told me that he have to work in pressures of leaders.
    but I immediately replied

    He replied,
    3. To get it stay at one place.
    I immediately reacted that your selfishness is problem to implement the RTI other wise no need to work in pressure of leader.

    Its true. If an officer is working without selfishness, he has no reasons to fear from RTI.

    In normal cource, an honest man may not find any problem in providing the information. The problem come only when some one ask certain information if disclosed is likely to expose past/present cases of corruption/illegal practices. The present PIO/AA may not have any role in it. But they find it difficult to displease or cause damage to their predecessor or colleagues, some of them might have reached high in the heirarchy by now. The solution is to create cituations compelling them to part with such information. Section 20 of the Act is the only solution. If the CIC/SIC start invoking provisionss of Section 20 liberally viz., interpret the terms "shall recommend" in the correct perspective, this roblem will automatically be solved. But no CIC/SICs is prepared to accept Sections 20(2) and 19(5) in its present form.
