Implementation of RTI Act 2005 in Armed Forces and its Implications

Author : Brig A K Vyas

This book is written with the aim of understanding the intrinsic features of the Act and its impact on the functioning of Armed Forces. The attempt of the author is to outline importance of the Right to Information Act 2005 which is empowering ordinary citizens to procure information from public authorities.

Armed Forces have not been included in the second schedule of RTI Act which exempts few organisations from the purview of RTI Act 2005; hence RTI Act is also equally applicable to all three services of the Armed Forces being Central Government Organisations.

The author has aptly covered nuances of the RTI Act and its implications for the Armed Forces. He has meticulously covered various illustrations and case studies supported with number of decisions of the Central Information Commission and its application to Armed Forces. These supplements have made the book reading more interesting and can act as a reference in future.
