I am S.Appoothy who retired in 1994 from service as Dy.General Manager/Technical Secretary to CMD-Neyveli Lignite Corporation, after serving there from 1957 when I joined there as Junior Engineer.
I am distressed to see the prevailing conditions in Tamil Nadu where citizens are not finding it easy to get the benefits of RTI Act from all departments of the government and boards in the same manner. While certain departments and many honest officials do cooperate with public very well, certain boards and officials evade provide information by all means. This may be due to a function carried out on the basis of false or forged documents.
I have joined RTI .ORG to get enlightened by the members of this forum on many an issue, so that I may be able to help and advise citizens in the area in which I live.
