There is no specific budget provisions for the implementation of RTI Act. As a result, NOTHING would happen, in respect of (A) Widespread training to educate public, (B) systemic changes envisaged in section 4(1)(a) and (C) Steps for suo moto disclosure under section 4 (2). Nodal agency has failed to address these basic issues and work out a plan of action, duly supported by financial resources dedicated for specific “outcomes.”

DOPT seems to be spending all their energy on circumventing and diluting the RTI Act. Even this is not being done properly as they are guilty of changing the defination of “information” in their web site, without ANY legal authority.
