About the Personal Details.
In my opinion simple implementation and increased uses by public of RTI tool may help bring great transparency and accountability in the working of government. While a very small population has used this tool, still we find high pendency of appeals at information commissions. Let’s analyse:
Human rights as a concept have evolved gradually over several centuries. They have been given a plurality of names, like rights of man, natural rights, human rights or Fundamental Rights.......
Every legal system India being no exception to it, recognizes the legitimacy of human rights
Its strange that 8 out of 28 SICs have stopped hearing post SC decision dated 13.09.12, in Namit sharma case (civil writ 210/2012).
SIC- Rajasthan has lacked courtesy and decency to put its decision of stopnig hearings till further notice in public domain including there own website.
Lots has been in news and our knowledge about how RTI, is slowly becoming redundant due to various reasons like:
1. Apathy of PIOs
2. Apathy of FAO's
3. Act being silent on refusal of FAO to perform quasi judicial function of impartially deciding first appeal
