How to file a Right to Information(RTI) Act anonymously?
When it comes to step ahead, many of us feel shy by thinking of the consequences which have to be faced later. We all think that we may not bring the changes to the world, but if we all think in the similar manner we will never get our rights, truth and justice. Try to speak up and share your thoughts with others, don’t worry you will knocked out very soon if your idea is wrong and will be well appreciated when it’s actually million dollar idea.
First of all, I would really like to appreciate this initiative made to all the masterminds working behind http://getup4change.org. All you need to do is to send an email regarding the problem you are facing to RTI Anonymous. Since you have a Right To Information to know why have you been kept waiting in a particular government department for your work to be processed. The best part is this, while applying for the RTI your Identity won’t be revealed and you will get all the information required mailed at your email ID.
Few things might be still wondering in your minds!
What is Right to Information(RTI) Act?
The Right to Information Act 2005 (RTI) is an Act of the Parliament of India “to provide for setting out the practical regime of right to information for citizens.” RTI can be filled by any Indian citizen to obtain any permissible documents of the government and inspect on it. All the government body is answerable to the RTI Act and the government officials has to give back the response in a written document with proper reasons within 30 days of time.
What are the consequences after filing the RTI?
Once you file a RTI against any government officials there are chances of many threats. Read more on it. I am not demotivating you, but to give a rough idea of the things which often happen in real scenario. Read the space to get the full details of filling a RTI anonymously.
“There is no protection for the common man who files an RTI application. There are so many school teachers who have been killed across the country for seeking information via RTI, reducing RTI to a complete sham since there is no protection offered. An RTI activist was killed earlier this month in Hyderabad itself and almost 350 people have been killed so far in barbaric manner to discourage others from using RTI. It is only a law on paper because the law does not work to offer protection barring the Whistleblower’s Act. There is no serious move to protect those who use RTI. RTI deaths is one of the worst sagas in history of India. True freedom is the ability of a common man to bring a sea change in system.” – Filmmaker Mani Shankar
