The Government has extended the facility of e-filing of RTI applications to President and Vice-President’s secretariat, and Foreign Ministry among others to ensure greater transparency in governance.
The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), which acts as nodal ministry for implementation of Right to Information Act, has launched a website – www.rtionline.gov.in to facilitate e-filing of applications and payment of fees.
Citizens will also be able to seek information online from ministries of Food Processing Industries, Health & Family Welfare, Home Affairs, Information & Broadcasting and Road Transport & Highways by exercising their Right to Information.
The Government also plans to extend e-filing of RTI applications to all central ministries or departments through the website.
