Thread: RTI Act has not helped much: Chief Justice

  1. Re: RTI Act has not helped much: Chief Justice


    Ganapathi ji,

    I did not have any intention of discoraging any body, or huarting any body, but I wanted to explain that how the act has been misused by some of the administrative heads.

    oh, it has been a great help. In times to come CIC is going to become a very powerful institution. Because its decisions will reflect public interests and public wud be much pleased.

    The RTI Act is a feeble act despite what it promises to accomplish.
    The Preamble of the Act set out a very big agenda on this Sunshine Act.

    Like "containing corruption", "Transparency in public life", "Accountability", "informed citizenry", "Governance" etc. etc.. etc...

    In reality we find nothing of sorts happening.

    The Deterrence built into the act are too week to accomplish any of the above stated objectives.

    This coupled with insensitive attitude & poor administration from those who ought to make this act successful have left this Act in complete shambles.

    Everytime someone shouts something negative about this act we take a dig at him saying that the act is still in it's infancy.

    So Let's hope this infant grows up sooner rather than later.

    Firstly it is too early to judge the efficacy of the Act. Secondly, like any other Act this can also be misused - but that is no reason to dump it or label it as useless.

    I totally agree with you. I suggest more and more powers to CIC and fast disposal of cases at CIC.

    Cockroaches are said to develop immunity to whatever bad condition they are exposed to. Even after a nuclear attack they will survive. Our bureaucrats are finding ways to escape from RTI queries. They learn faster than RTI users.

    Any thing can be used positively and negatively. A knife can kill and also save life in operations by doctor. Hence some misuse may be there, but it is good. Even if the intention is personal vendetta, the dirt is coming out. Others will desist from doing wrongs, lest things may open up, due to personal squaring out in future. If officer has not done any thing wrong, why he should be afraid of misuse of RTIA?
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.

    jps50ji,

    You hit the nail on the head. Let us not worry much about the slow start of the Act. Decades of bureaucratic habits cannot be changed overnight by the passing of an Act. May the as suggested in this forum, more broadbases, enlarged and empowered CIC will help speed up the transformation.
