Right to Information Act

On 15th June 2005 the Right to Information Act 2005 was passed by the Parliament. It came into force on 12th October, 2005. Any citizen of India may request information from a "public authority” under the provisions of this Act, (a body of Government or "instrumentality of State"). It required replying expeditiously or within thirty days. The Act also requires every public authority to computerize their records for wide dissemination and to proactively certain categories of information so that the citizens need minimum recourse to request for information formally.
