The Right to Information Act allows citizens of India to access public information and thus to question the government and bureaucracy in many ways. RTI Act facilitates the establishment of knowledgeable society by putting pressure on officials to ensure transparency and involvement of citizens in decision making. The implementation of the Act would lead to weeding out corruption to a large extent and promoting an interface between government and citizens.
O.Y.S.T.E.R. has been creating awareness on the RTI (Right To Information) and its purpose. As corruption and red-tapism are rampant in public offices in rise, the Right to Information Act, 2005 has come as a boon for Indian citizens giving them the right to access information and services they need from public offices. If effectively implemented, RTI can bring in openness and transparency between public authorities and rural people to help enhance informed citizenry and socio-economic development in rural areas; the awareness level in rural areas is still low on the Act.
Every year OYSTER is conducting awareness programmes and seminars on RTI Act among students and all sectors of people.
