RTI Act, 2005: A Tool for Effective Governance | 2nd July 2021

Information is a basic and inalienable right of every human being. In a democratic country, It is important that citizens have the right to enquire and be able to access the information about their governance. Keeping this as a goal, the Right to Information Act, 2005 was enacted by the Indian Parliament in 2005 in order to promote transparency and accountability in the administration. Right to Information Act works as a mechanism for Indian citizens to maintain confidence in the government through seeking any accessible information from a public authority and create a sense of accountability in the government and its functionaries. It ultimately serves as an essential tool for effective governance
