    I agree with karira that this is a ruse to scuttle RTI in whatever possible way. If the govt is serious, Invite suggestions from the public and hold open seminars with RTI activists and any body who is interested. Govt can also involve upbhokta sangthan activists.

    Please do not misunderstand me.
    I am not against any survey.
    All I am questioning is whether it is the right time to survey the efficacy of the RTI Act.

    slchowdhary, here I am with 17 RTI applications pending at various stages - ALL for just getting the PA to put up a board giving details of PIO/AA. If even that has not been done, what is the big point doing a survey ?

    I can assure you that the total exercise (DoPT and the RTI Activists) will not cost less than Rs 5 Crores. As a layman, that means for me, either:

    50,000 boards with PIO/AA details (@ Rs 1000 per board)
    10,00,000 user guides in different languages for RTI novices (@ Rs 50 a booklet)
    1428 Desktop Computers (with printers) for SIC/CIC (@ RS 35,000 a computer)
    2000 RTI camps in various Villages (@ Rs 25,000 a camp)

    Now what is better ? To do a survey or do any of the above things ?

    You can decide for yourself.

    Re: Testing RTI: Govt vs activists, Pricewaterhouse vs Google



    The other day our hon'ble PM was unhappy at corruption problem when he spoke in a seminar of Justices and CMs. He should strengthen RTI rather than finding ways to dilute it. If really govt. is serious about containing corruption [which I doubt!], it should implement simple ways to forcefully and sincerely implement RTI. Statute in books is only first step. We have reams and reams of laws in the books, but the ground realities are totally different. Govt machinery cannot stop corruption. Its only empowered public [through RTI etc] that will reduce the problem to a great extent.It is only common man that is vicitim of corruption. Give him the authority and he will fight his own battle. Some misuse will be there, but every law [or any other thing]has this problem.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.

    If anybody of you get hold of the terms of survey, objectives and methodology to be adopted, it would be wiser.

    As this thread is with 'Poll', it will show the last post as 'last poll submitted' rather than the last post. So anytime somebody votes it the thread will bump.

    Good way to keep the thread alive
