Thread: Two Public Information Officers found guilty of withholding information

    Re: Two Public Information Officers found guilty of withholding information


    Obviously! RTI Act is meant for 'citizens'. A PA is not a citizen. But these episodes only show how the normal system has become ineffective and how the powers that be are encouraging it to be so.

    Govt. officers are slowly but surely coping with new era of open and transparent governance, befitting a democracy, where ordinary citizen is the ultimate owner of all govt. information. Sixty year old habits and mind frame will take some time, training and public punch, to change in line with this most progressive and empowering piece of legislation enacted after independence. Give a chance to RTI. Let us keep on keeping on.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.

    Dear jps50,

    You are right but how much time will be taken to change the mind set depends on us. If we remain silent they will take 60 years more to change their mind set. If we want it can be fast. We should use RTI more and More and in case of fault we must go for appeals too. Then only they will feel people has known their right.

    Their is no dearth of public who are concerned, we have a great task infront of us, to bring such people to this forum because this forum gives moral support that they are not alone, and more people are there with them with similar attitude. Let us hope the best.
