IT'S OUR RIGHT. An inalienable right has been conferred on citizens.
`Right to Information Act will empower common people'
The legislative intent is clear; we are entitled to know how our money is spent.
The onus is on us to make the Act work. In effect, therefore, the right conferred on the citizen is an exhaustive one.
It allows him to assess and examine every government decision, to study the reasons recorded by the government for taking a particular step, and to
utilise information so gathered to ensure that government acts in a transparent and just manner.
Indeed, the preamble to the Act puts it well when it says, "democracy requires an informed citizenry and transparency of information" and adds these "are vital to its functioning and also to contain corruption and to hold Governments and their instrumentalities accountable to the governed".
