Amendments proposed, RTI rules likely to be more people-friendly
The withdrawal on the limitation of number of words when asking for information, restructuring of fees, halting provisions to withdraw an appeal under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, are some of the amendments in the RTI rules that have been adopted by the Working Group on Transparency, Accountability and Governance under the National Advisory Council (NAC). These amendments are likely to be placed before a full house of the NAC on December 21. The amendments were adopted by the working group in a recent consultation on the proposed amendments to RTI rules held under the chairpersonship of NAC member Aruna Roy. The meeting was also attended by NAC member Deep Joshi, Dhiraj Srivastava, former CIC Wajahat Habibullah, RTI activist Shekhar Singh, MKSS convenor National Campaign for People's Right to Information (NCPRI) Nikhil Dey and others.
