Description
Foreword

The Right to information is increasingly recognized the World over as basic freedom which makes any governance system that claims to be a system representing the will of its people . As the Prime minister of India , Dr. Manmohan singh put it , on introducing bull the bill in Parliament on May 11, 2005.

“I believe that the passage of this Bill will see the down of a new era in our processes governance, an era in our processes of governance, an era of performance and efficiency , an era which will ensure that benefits of growth flow to all sections of our people an era which will eliminate the scourge of corruption , an era which will bring the common man’s concern to the heart of lal processes of governance, an era which will truly fulfil the hopes of the founding father f our Republic .”

The Right to information is now a ‘Fundamental Right ‘ of a free citizenry the world over , from which other basic human rights can flow , and no society can claim to b e truly free unless it has both the instrument and the practice to this right whether it be called the freedom of information as it is in most countries where it is practiced at presents , or the rights to information which it has become after it has been so declared in the World’s largest and most intense democracy with the enforcement of India’s right to information Act in October 2005.

Advocate BMD Agrawal has, therefore, acted at the right movement in publishing his “The Right to information” at this stage when an assessment can be made of the history of the use of this freedom and the experience of different sections of society , with the diverse requirement of different sections of society , with the diverse requirement of different states , in its actual implementation.

The Right t information Act in India has been described by many as the most radical legislation in this country since the passage of the Constitution of India in 1950. In initiating the Process that culminated in the Hon’ble Justice Matthew has in his ruling on behalf of the Bench in Raj Narain vs state of UP (1975) 4 SCC 428 observed that, “In a governments of responsible like ours, where all agents of the public ,must be responsible for their conduct, there can be put few secrets . the People of this country have a right to know very public act, everything that is done in a public way , by their publiact, everything that is done in a public way , by their public functionaries … to cover with veil of secrecy the common routine business, I not in the interest of public.”

Even if one were not go to agree with this definition in its entirety, the test of the law ‘s acceptance by the public in general came in mid -2006 when the very Government which had passed this legislation through India’s Parliament sought to bring amendments original Act. The widespread public debate both in the visual and written media as well as the general public outcry in neighbourhood which included slum areas persuaded the Government of India that consultation. In other words, the government that , in fact, , sponsored the Act recognized that this legislation had passed beyond its domain and had been accepted by India’s Public as its own . No legislature could have wished for more from any legislation.

Although, the exercise of the freedom of information has now matured and even fully developed in several societies, yet it is relatively nascent in most developing countries. These countries moreover , like our own , are in many cases those which are only now emerging from the incubus of a colonial hierarchy, structured to exploit the skills o f its people at the least cost of the colonial master an the economic ruin of the colonized populace. In such a system transparency was of no account and accountability encouraged only to itself, never to the public. Hence w have insidious legislations like India’s official secrets Act of 1923 , which clearly defined the public as enemy of the state. It is for this reason that India’s experimentation with this Right , which is in its ninth year of operation, and seen varying results within the federal structure of India, has been put under such close scrutiny by our own intellectual leadership an the international community , It was the focus of discussion in Mexico‘s celebration of its transparency week in the first week of October 2013.

Advocate BMD Agrwal’s ‘the right to information” examines India’ experience from its evolution from an esoteric freedom of a highly enlightened section of society aloof from the humdrum of the prosaic world, to its recognition as a fundamental right for all. It highlights with detailed discussion the bearings that this will have on economic development while protecting the essential requirements like the need fro good and water . this book will from an essential reference work for all students of this legislation to help chart a roadmap to further strength the basis of the exercise of this right by all.

Preface

The Right to information is a fundamental Right under article 19 [1] (a) – freedom of speech and expression of the constitution of India . t is Well settled . There is no dispute or illusion about it.

After Crossing all the bridges before enacting any law , the Right to information act, 2005 is in force with effect from 10-10-2005 “The Act is to provide for setting out the practical regime of right to information for citizens to secure access to information under the control of public authorities.”

The RTI Act, 2005 is a vital legislation from all points of view and shades of though including the democratic set of our country. It has immense potentialities and expectations. There is imperative need to know , to understand, to implement it with all sincerely of purpose.

Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
