CALL AN INDIAN CONSULATE OR THE INDIAN EMBASSY TODAY

SAVE THE RIGHT TO INFORMATION

A landmark and progressive Right to Information (RTI) Act, passed by the
Indian parliament in October 2005, had ushered in a new hope for a nation
under seige by the corrupt public officials. The enthusiastic use of the RTI
Act by the citizenry to reveal scores of illegeal dealings by the public
authorities, promised the beginning of an era of true participatory
democracy.

However in an arbitrary manner, the government introduced an amendment on
July 20, 2006, that would exempt “file notings” from the purview of the act
– which means that the identity of the guilty officials will remain
concealed under the garb of secrecy. This move dashes any hopes of
accountability and transparency in the functioning of the government, thus
allowing corruption to thrive unchecked.

Call an Indian Consulate ot the Indian Embassy and express your
disappointment at the proposed amendment. Tell the Indian Government not to
play hide and seek with our RIGHT TO INFORMATION.
