In the changing time, Right to Information Act is required to understand by every individual. Therefore to support the basic knowledge base of our students our Department of Management Studies, SKIT in collaboration with Rajasthan Center of Transparency International India is organizing a National Seminar on “Right to Information Act”.

 

It has taken India 82 years to transition from an opaque system of governance, legitimized by the colonial Official Secrets Act, to one where citizens can demand the right to information. The recent enactment of the Right to Information Act 2005 marks a significant shift for Indian democracy, for the greater the access of citizens to information, the greater will be the responsiveness of government to community needs. Right To Information is derived from our fundamental right of freedom of speech and expression under Article 19 of the Constitution. The Act and its rules define a format for requisitioning information, a time period within which information must be provided, a method of giving the information, some charges for applying and some exemptions of information which will not be given. The free flow of information in India remains severely restricted by three factors: a)The legislative framework includes several pieces of restrictive legislation, such as the Official Secrets Act, 1923; b)The pervasive culture of secrecy and arrogance within the bureaucracy; and c)The low levels of literacy and rights awareness amongst India's people. The primary power of RTI is the fact that it empowers individual Citizens to requisition information. Hence without necessarily forming pressure groups or associations, it puts power directly into the hands of the foundation of democracy- the Citizen.

 

Therefore the citizen should have the knowledge of right to information forms the crucial underpinning of participatory democracy - it is essential to ensure accountability and good governance. The greater the access of the citizen to information, the greater the responsiveness of government to community needs. Alternatively, the more restrictions that are placed on access, the greater will be the feelings of 'powerlessness' and 'alienation'. Without information, people cannot adequately exercise their rights as citizens or make informed choices.
