RTI SURVEY 2017
Posted On October 29th, 2017, Posted By - Admin
The Right to Information Act, 2005, is a right given to every citizen to question the state and the central authorities methodologies, projects and also raise civic issues in the RTI filing. An individual can raise questions about as what the progress is of the potholes situations in their areas, the streetlight conditions, etc. If the questions are not answered or are deliberately ignored, then the authorities can be penalized.
The individuals can ask queries within a limited scope. Questions about what strategic steps the defense is about to take, confidential government operations, among others which come under the Official Secrets Act cannot be asked.
Uttar Pradesh is India’s most populous state, but most of its citizens are unaware of the Right to Information Act, the landmark legislation introduced in 2005 to make governance more transparent and give citizens greater access to information.
Data shows that this trend is visible in other heavily populated states as well apart from Maharashtra. On the other hand, the least populated states appear to be more aware of their right to information.
A recent study by CMS India indicated that Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh – all heavily populated states – were least aware of RTI.
In Haryana, which is India’s 17th most populous state, 93 percent of citizens are knowledgeable about RTI, up from just 3 percent in 2007. Punjab (84 percent) and Odisha (83 percent) are also well aware of the legisla
Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and Sikkim are also pointed to be among the states which do not maintain the annual reports. Hence, data of these states does not reflect real situations, the report said.
Despite the lack of awareness, the situation has significantly improved since 2007. While just 2 percent of Uttar Pradesh citizens were aware of RTI in 2005, the number has improved to 18 percent in 2017.
Between 2005 and 2016, about 2.44 crore RTI applications were filed, according to a report from NGO Transparency International India. While Maharashtra filed the most number of RTIs, Uttar Pradesh lagged.
