Bharat Handbook on Right to Information Act Niraj Kumar


Freedom of Information, a phrase coined in the United States, is a very different notion from the freedom of speech, freedom of press or freedom of expression. It empowers the common man to obtain information in possession of the State. The Right to Information Act, 2005 is a very powerful tool, given in the hands of Indian citizens. It provides them a chance to transform the way the government and its officials function. Asking the government for information, one asks for the government to be transparent and accountable to its citizens.

The present volume is a comprehensive book on the Right to Information. The people’s struggle compelled the Indian Parliament to finally enact the Right to Information Act, 2005 which ultimately came into effect from 12th October, 2005 in all the States of India except the State of Jammu & Kashmir, where it is made effective from 31st October, 2019.

The present volume, now in its sixth edition, contains an exhaustive commentary in simple but interesting language on all the sections of the Act with appropriate comments.The author has made all efforts to consolidate all laws relating to right to information and present in a lucid language, in a coherent manner and logical sequence. It also contains specimen that can be used for not only moving first application under the Act to seek information but also specimen application forms for moving first and second appeal too. Another uniqueness of this book is that a separate Division has been exclusively devoted on framing the questions for moving an application under section 6 of the Act.
