Under subsection 1(d) of section 4 of R.T.I. Act 2005, is quoted caterically that It is obligatory duty of a public authority to provide reasons of its administrative and quasi-judicial decisions but unfortunately no reason is being provided on filmsy grounds even after more than six years from the date of enforcement of R.T.I. Act 2005.
Hon'ble members. R.T.I. Act 2005 was enacted by the highest rule making body of India to enhance transparency and accountability in the working of public authority. It is about seven years passed since the date when transparency act came into force. How much shameful for these public authorities that they did not comply the provision of subsection 1(b) of section 4 of R.T.I. Act 2005 ie voluntary disclosure of information. More surprising is that even transparency panel is not keeping its website update. Even for simple information seeker has to submit RTI communique and used to run from pillar to post. Tendency of non disclosure of information is causing huge backlog of cases in the information commissions. Commissions itself are adopting lackadaisical approach and procrastination in redressing the grievance as ipsofacto obvious.
99 % websites including PMO, Presidents Office do not given the duty list of their group C employees as per RTI act every employee means all employees. The detailed duty list must be given to avoid the corruption.
