KNOW ABOUT RIGHT TO INFORMATION(RTI)
Posted On October 22nd, 2017, Posted By - Admin
This law was passed by Parliament on 15 June 2005 and came fully into force on 12 October 2005. The first application was given to a Pune police station. It codifies a fundamental right of citizens.
The Right to Information campaign, as we know it, began in the early 1990s in rural Rajasthan through the struggles of peasants and workers of the Mazdoor Kisan Shakti Sangathan a non-party political organization fighting on issues of land, minimum wages and delivery of basic services to the poor.
In 1996, the prominent Hindi journalist, Prabhash Joshi, came to support the 40-day MKSS dharna in Beawar, Rajasthan, and picked up and popularized another defining slogan of this new discourse by calling his next column in Jan Satta, Hum Jaanenge, Hum Jeeyenge, Other eminent journalists like Nikhil Chakravarty, Ajit Bhattacharjea, Kuldip Nayar and Prakash Kardaley also supported this movement, not just as journalists, but as activist.
Fifty six countries in the world have already enacted acts providing right to information including countries from North America, most of the Europe, Colombia, Peru, South Africa, India, Austria and New Zealand. Over 25 countries have initiated the process to enact the Right to Information law most of which are from South America, East Africa, South East Asian, some from Russian federation.
In India, the right to information has been developed through diverse strands for almost the entire period of the country‘s independent history.
Even before the Central legislation was passed, some of the states have introduced their own Right to Information legislation. The first among these was Tamil Nadu and are Rajasthan, Karnataka, Delhi, Maharashtra, Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir.
