I received this email from Amitabh and thought of sharing with readers of this blog too. Please participate and increase the quality of research.

Mini Research papers on “RTI- Success or Failure in India” are Invited

We all know that RTI Act has come up as one of the greatest laws enacted in Independent India and its impact on the related socio-political fabric and administrative setup is quite visible. While previously the doors of governance were quite closed to common masses, today with the passage of time RTI has made it possible that everyone can come and have a look at what is going inside the government offices. Yet there are many people who feel that RTI has been an abject failure and it has not been able to achieve most of the goals the social activists had originally envisaged. There is a middle of the road thinking where the feeling is that while a few of the objectives have been achieved, many others still remain as it is.

Our organization, National RTI Forum is making a small contribution in this field by inviting all those concerned with this topic to send Mini research papers on the topic “RTI- Success or Failure in India” The Research Paper can be about any particular aspect of RTI or it can also take the subject in its totality.
