Chandigarh RTI Responds Tremendous

Chandigarh: This to inform you all that RTI Chandigarh started its first its kind RTI HELPLINE in this side of country 11 years back on 15th August 2008.It was started to help RTI Information seekers to learn to file RTI Applications which eventually spread all over India.  Being just in third year of beginning there was a need to understand uses of RTI. As such In these 11 years making people aware about RTI I have received almost thousands of RTI Queries on how ,where, whom to apply for RTI information.  Many information seekers and many facing problems in their life have also contacted me for guidance on how to use RTI in matrimonial cases, in family disputes, in property disputes and even in cases filed . People from almost all states have contacted me for rti issues .After the RTI Helpline became helpful and famous ,the information seekers started talking to SPOs and CPIOs regarding our advice on RTI Issues resultantly many Govt offices also started seeking guidance for supply of information  and even in cases of appeals filed. The main success resulted in changes in RTI application monitoring in Chandigarh UT and RTI ONLINE was implemented on Chandigarh thanks to efforts made by the than Adviser IAS Parimal Rai  when December 2017 RTI Online was started by Administrator of UT.It is also a matter of pride that RTI Chandigarh celebrated 10th years of RTI on 20th Oct 2015 where the tan Adviser to Administrator IAS Vijay Dev was the Chief Guest and Home Secretory IAS Anurag Aggarwal and Senior IAS Officer of Haryana Sh Roshan Lal also graced.
