Following the enactment of the Right to Information Act 2005 (RTI Act) in May 2005, all citizens of India now have the right to access information. The RTI Act recognises that in a democracy like India, all information held by government ultimately belongs to the people. Making information available to citizens is simply a part of a normal government funcionint because the public have a right to know what public officals do with their money. This manual gives an overview of what has been the process to achieve the right to information, it explains what the right to information is, the usefulness of the law, who to ask for information, etc.
