Thread: RTI Act has not helped much: Chief Justice

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


    There is another point too. The courts are also not friendly with RTI. Some of the rules are indicative of it. In addition if one does not get justice even at CIC/SCIC level, one has to go to high courts and there delay will be unmeasurable, defeating the purpose of RTI. Right to Justice is above Right to Information and former is denied by inordinate delays, complecated and costly litigation, which common man of India cannot afford even on 59th Republic Day. PA drag common man to high/supreme courts at the cost of public money with no personal accountability.Mera Bharat Mahan !


    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.

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


    Dear Members,
    One important point, in my opinion, is missing in the whole of discussion. What is the percentage of MISUSE?
    Next point worth consideration is: There is corruption all round. One does not have capacity/time/money to fight it out. But when he is tortured in any way by a Corrupt official, he tries to dig out his corruption. Is it MISUSE? This phenomenon can be compared to illegal BANGLADESHI infiltrators. They are here there everywhere. None challenges them, although they are eating away our share (subsidised ration, jobs of the poor is being grabbed & Public land is being occupied along with creation of pollution etc................), but if someone occupies the house of anyone, there is a violent reaction/opposition to throw the culprit out.

    The discussion is interesting and generates hope. I too have had varied experience of using RTI. Initially I too doubted about its efficacy. But it has started working. Let us not expect too much of out of it. But if public spirited persons, like in this team, continues their self less efforts, it is a great tool. But a tool is as good as one who holds it.

    A mere look at the media coverage that the RTI related issues get is a proof of its popularity. If it is popular, there must be something good about it.

    Please look at it this way - "The very fact that the CJI want him to be expempted from the clutches of the RTI Act imply its deterrent to scare even the CJI"
