RTIA05 is indeed a great boon to the public in this corrupt society. The beaurocracy however often complains that their work is increased manifold in giving replies to applications recieved and often tries to stiffle it or inordinately delays replies. The most obvious solution to this is that the bureaucracy must be directed to send replies to all communications recieved by them from the public. In most cases, applications for info have to be filed because no replies on their earlier letters were recieved from the bureaucracy. In fact, the Act needs small change to the effect that if anbody's letter/representation is not replied by the official concerned within 30 days (as for the application under RIA05), he would also be liable to penalty @ Rs 250/- per day of delay. The NGOs may like to take it up with the Govt.
In fact, I have started giving the following note on all my letters written to various govt officials, altough of course to no avail yet
'As you would no doubt be aware, I am entitled to know the action taken by you on this letter u/s of the RTIA05. It will therefore be desirable if you will inform me of the action taken by you on this communication soon to avoid further correspondance under the RTIA05'
