    (i) RTI applications to public authorities at District ? Block/ Village level regarding measures taken by them to implement RTI Act.

    (ii) Formal complaint regarding non-implementation to Central ? State Information Commissioners, to pressurise varius Ministries and departments to implement RTI Act.

    In my opinion,RTI Act may never be implemented in letter and spirit, without sustained pressure from the citizens. I have placed draft RTI aplication and other useful material at the yahoo group “rti4ngo”.

    and Neeraj Kumar of NCPRI.

    I am convinced that without sustained pressure from the citizen groups/ngos, public authorities in Central and State Government will not take adequate measures to implement RTI Act in letter and spirit. In my view, audit of implementation of RTI Act at grass roots is essential, which requires:

    (a) Application under RTI seeking copy of documents regarding implementation of RTI.

    (b) Complaint to CIC/SIC, regarding non-implementation leading to directions from the Commissioners to concerned Ministry /Department.

    I have tried to initiate the process by placing some material in the yahoo group rti4ngo, to faciltate the audit of RTI implementation by citizens. I request for the help of CHRI,NCPRI and other active groups for due publicity to mobilise such actions.
