The Right To Information Act (2005) allows any citizen to participate in governance by enabling herself/himself to seek information about the accessing information about the functioning of the Government. It aims to promote transparency in Government activities. To make the best use of this legislation, Government of Kerala has mandated the necessity of a gateway to the citizens in exercising their RTI.
RTI services with respect to the notified departments are made available through e-District portal to the citizens for quick search/access to RTI related information. The process flow of RTI are completely automated for the departments covered under e-District project and as per the RTI act, it will take 30 days for the completion of service. For the Government departments which are not covered under this project, the process flow are partially automated i.e. the service request will be routed and made available to the concerned department through the DC office.
