Chennai-based NGO, Nandini Voice for The Deprived, has invited the public to come up with their views and experiences with regard to the Right to Information Act (RTI Act) and provide suggestions and recommendations.

According to a press release, this is for the NGO’s nationwide opinion survey to find out whether the RTI Act had served its purpose. The objective of the survey is to ascertain the ground reality and forward the consensus view and recommendations of the citizens to the Central and State governments for consideration.

While the RTI Act was initially hailed as the ultimate tool to ensure transparency in the functioning of the government, according to the NGO, activists complained that it had not really happened that way.  The response should be within 2,000 words in English and can be sent on or before August 5 either by email (nsvenkatchennai@gmail.com) or by post to Nandini Voice for The Deprived, M 60/1, 4th Cross Street, Besant Nagar, Chennai - 600 090.
