In this edition of Sarokar we discuss the proposed rules under the Right To Information Act. The central government recently proposed new rules under section 27 of Right to Information (RTI) 2017 to modify the 2005 RTI Act.
The major changes in the proposed rules read that any application, in general, will not exceed the word limit of 500 words, excluding annexure and it must contain the addresses of the Central Public Information Officer and that of the applicant. New rules also propose to hike the price for providing information.
