Information is your right, you shall have it

Right to Information Act has come into force in India as of 12 October 2005. This should lead to some interseting developments if Citizens decide to use it in a positive manner.

Few months back one of Asha Munich volunteers who had shifted to Delhi used this Act to ask for information on some road development work near Noida. The response was quite interesting and led to changes. (An article came in the 15 August 2005 issue of Outlook India.)

I am looking forward to see how we will use this act in the days to come.
