What is RTI
RTI stands for "Right to Information," and it refers to a legal right that allows citizens to access information held by public authorities. The Right to Information is a fundamental right guaranteed by law in many countries, and its purpose is to promote transparency, accountability, and openness in the functioning of government bodies and other public institutions.
The Right to Information Act, 2005 in India is one of the most notable examples of legislation that grants citizens the right to request information from public authorities.
