Delhi gets RTI por­tal, but there’s a gap

Governance Now - - BRIEFINGS -

The Delhi gov­ern­ment has come up with its long awaited on­line por­tal for fil­ing RTI. The por­tal (www.rtion­line.delhi.gov.in) has been launched for 172 de­part­ments un­der the Delhi gov­ern­ment. It be­comes sec­ond state to en­able its cit­i­zens to file the RTI on­line af­ter Ma­ha­rash­tra. How­ever, the por­tal has some lim­i­ta­tions and may trou­ble you if you want to know any­thing per­tain­ing to the three mcds. The por­tal does not fa­cil­i­tate the op­tion of fil­ing RTI ap­pli­ca­tions and sub­se­quent trans­fer to the three mu­nic­i­pal cor­po­ra­tions, New Delhi mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil and Delhi Po­lice. In­clu­sion of these pub­lic au­thor­i­ties in the ‘se­lect’ op­tion is nec­es­sary be­cause many RTI ap­pli­ca­tions re­ceived in var­i­ous Delhi gov­ern­ment of­fices are to be trans­ferred to these au­thor­i­ties, which will have to be done man­u­ally for the time be­ing.
