Railways to handle RTI applications online
Come 2010, the Ahmedabad railway division will handle RTI cases online to cut cost and time wasted in responding to queries of applicants at present. The initiative is aimed at bringing transparency in the process as well.

The new process will reduce the average response time to RTI queries and help railways save money it spends on postage.
