State Level RTI: Assam

Law

Assam was until recently the only state in the North East which had enacted right to information legislation. The passage of the Assam Right to Information Act 2002 came as a surprise to most. The State Act was brought in so quietly that there was hardly any discussion on its content.

In any case, in May 2005, the national Right to Information Act 2005 was passed by Parliament. The RTI Act 2005 received Presidential assent on 15 June and came fully into force on 12 October 2005. (For more information on the passage of the Act and implementation at the national level, click here.) The RTI Act 2005 covers all Central, State and local government bodies and will apply to public authorities in Assam.

It is not clear at this time whether the Assam RTI Act will be repealed to make way for the national RTI Act. The Assam Government has started implementing the RTI Act 2005. The Government has issued Assam Right to Information Fee Rules, 2005.
