Right To Information Act – Help Desk

It is a known fact that the islanders of Lakshadweep are facing multiple problems in their life due to geographical reasons on one side, which is multiplied many fold by the negative actions and attitude of the officials who are entrusted with the important responsibility of supporting the islanders and bring them up on par with those well educated, well cultured and well settle people of the main land. The local people have no basic knowledge of complaining before the appropriate offices or gathering information on any matter, that have adversely affected them.

As for example, they cannot have access to the relevant records of the Global Tenders floated in the year 2010 for bidding the Bangaram Island Resort. There are many such unknown subjects affecting their life.

In the above background, it is felt essential to bring home the most important enactment of the Indian Parliament, “the Right to Information Act, 2005 (22 of 2005). This Act enables every citizen of India to obtain information on almost all the subject of his interest, by making an application, followed with the specified application fee. In general cases, the concerned is bound by Law to provide the required information to the applicant within 30 days of the days of the application. There are vital penal clauses, which are strong enough to fine or put the erring official in jail, in extreme cases. The profile of the Right to Information Act and the salient clauses thereof are summarized below for the information of the ordinary people of Lakshadweep.
