Information Obtained under RTI
CHRI’s Access to Information team (ATI team) is testing India’s Right to Information Act, 2005 (RTI Act) to obtain information that is not easily available in the public domain. Widening the boundaries of the RTI Act for engendering greater transparency in government is another purpose of this endeavour. We hope to expand this exercise to other Commonwealth countries that have similar access legislation.
The information obtained by the ATI team is freely accessible for any person at the links given below.
A significant proportion of the information uploaded in this section was provided by the public authorities free of cost because they were furnished after the lapse of the 30-day deadline stipulated by the RTI Act. Where the information was obtained upon payment of additional fee, in most cases the expenses were borne by the members of the Access to Information team.
