    September 11th, 2006 at 3:39 pm ethis shows how weak is the position of ICs and CIC. they are supposed to be statutory bodies appointed under the Act. however DoPT, SC and even insignificant departments flout their orders.

    only way is that ICs should open a web site and publish their awards on the net. do they have courage?.

    it is high time CAG, CIC and CVC are given a constitutional independent status equivalant to that of election commission. it is sad that CBI can not proceed against ministers. all their cases against politicians die in due course.

    September 11th, 2006 at 3:50 pm epreamble to RTI Act talks of;

    1. transparency &
    2. accountability in the working of every public authority
    3. democracy requires informed citizenry and transparency of information and also
    4. to contain corruption and to hold
    5. governments and their instrumentalities accountable to the governed.

    are these acid tests being applied to recent proposed amendments?
