Ministries Reluctant to Share Info Under RTI, says Study

A decade after enactment of the Right to Information Act , a study conducted by Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative has revealed that the government departments are unwilling to share even basic data on how many RTI applications have been received, disposed of or rejected.

The study shows that the percentage of public authorities unwilling to share this data with Central Information Commission (CIC), the transparency watchdog, has increased over the years, with 27% of government departments not reporting this data in 2013-14, compared to 11% in 2005-06, the year of introduction of RTI Act.
