Proposed RTI Amendement drastically reduces it’s effectiveness

Posted by rtiact2005 on July 29, 2006

SPECIFY ONLY THE EXCLUDED CATEGORIES TO STOP FILE NOTINGS FROM 
DISCLOSURE. 

Very well said lines are :'The correct course would have been to 
specify the excluded categories and permit the disclosure of file notings in 
all other matters, rather than define the one area where file notings 
can be scrutinised. 

What the proposed amendment does, therefore, is to 
emaciate the RTI law and to drastically reduce its effectiveness. 

In the process, one of the best things to be done by the UPA government has 
been killed. The absence of Sonia Gandhi from the National Advisory 
Council, which was the prime mover of the RTI Act in its original form, is 
clearly being felt. 


(Also very well highlighted by www.righttoinformation.org) 
Last line well said!!! It was National Advisory Council under the 
guidance of Sonia Gandhi that brought in sound people-friendly welfare 
measures, thereby bringing some amount of credibility for this government to 
exist.
