EKAVI KANNADIGARE serikondu – Bring Transparency in GoK !!

Vikram Simha

The Karnataka Initiative for Right to Information ” The KIRTI ”

Let us develop a NETWORK of RTI Activists in Karnataka State. Help to build this NETWORK.

Do you get tired of people complaining about how inefficient, unaccountable and corrupt our public authorities are, but do nothing about it?

Do you want to play your part in effecting a transparent and accountable government without having it disturb your daily life?

What is Right to Information?

Right to Information Act 2005, which became effective in October 2005, empowers every citizen to

q Ask any questions from the Government or seek any information
q Take copies of any government documents
q Inspect any government documents.

If the desired information is not provided within 30 days of application, the concerned officer becomes liable for a penalty of Rs 250 per day of default upto a maximum of Rs 25,000 per application. And if wrong information is provided, a penalty upto a maximum of Rs 25,000 can be imposed on the officer.

Where to file RTI application?

Every Government department has nominated one of its officers as a Public Information Officer (PIO). You should file your application with him/her. You have to deposit an application fee along with your application. In the case of Central Government Departments, the application fee is Rs 10. It is the same for many State Governments also. But many State Governments have fixed different fee. The fees fixed by different states are given in annexure. There is no fee for the people living below poverty line.

How to write an application?

  2. The information is the need to unit to get things right in GOT.Offices where the need to find the right documents is not availed or impossible to get. The unity and bond among the officials and the some babus is strong and lasting that a village/businessman/employer is constrained to bow to the higher up. This monarchy should be ruled out. While peoples problems should be solved. The dynamic democracy exist.

  3. The fact remains that the majority are silent to their problems as they feel that no one will supprot them. The strength of unity to a cause is stronger than a mighty lion. The political and govt. officials gain power only when you corrut them, they are not corrupted by the common ‘MAN’. The office is corrupted by the peole who corrupt them. The officials are good, why corrupt them? We should not corrupt them because we have the RIT. Like pay the fair and travell in comfortable.
