Why does RTI work :-)
Welcome to this portal. RTI is working because of penalty clause. Any violation will not only attract financial penalty of Rs250/- delay per day maximum Rs25000/- per application, disciplinary action can be ordered by the Information Commissions. There is separate and independent authorities in place all over India [exclg J & K]. Attempts are being made to dilute implementation by vested interests and RTI activists are strongly resisting such efforts.
