Right to Information includes the citizens’ right to -
• inspect works, documents, and records.
• take notes, extracts or certified copies of documents or records.
• take certified samples of material.
• obtain information in form of printouts, diskettes, floppies, tapes, video cassettes or in any other electronic mode or through printouts.
The citizens can obtain the above from all government departments to ensure transparency. All they need to do is to invoke the Right To Information (RTI) Act. The state of Maharashtra leads in RTI activism and use, thanks to Anna Hazare’s inspiring leadership
