RTI to go online

Submitted by Karthik on 15 May, 2012 - 15:41

DNA has a story on the government setting up a website (and a call centre) to allow for RTI applications to be submitted and tracked online.

According to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), which is the nodal department for handling RTI related matters, one of the main objectives behind the planned call centre and website is to address citizens’ handicap arising out of illiteracy in filing RTI applications, to save money, reduce inefficient practices and to promote transparency at government offices.

N.B. An existing site that offers online filing of RTIs is already available. However, it is believed that it does not support online payment of fees as of yet and it does not provide a multilingual interface.
