What are we doing at the moment?
A meeting of Chennai RTI volunteers (new volunteers are welcome) is scheduled
On April 6, a volunteer will file an application with the Chennai Corporation’s Roads department. This will be our first application under the Right to Information Act, 2005. The application will ask the Corporation to provide on electronic/paper medium,
This being our first application, we hope to learn the working of the RTI Act in Chennai. When we get this information, our volunteers will help determine if the process for permissions is being adhered to by the Corporation and if the digging agencies are adhering to the requirement of closing their digs. We intend to bring all violations of the process to the notice of the Corporation officials. The help of the media and legal contacts will be sought if alternate action has to be taken.
The road-dig issue is going to be our RTI 101, our first case. If you wish to volunteer for this, get in touch with us at email@example.com. Residents of Zone 8 and Zone 10 can get in touch with us if you come across a road-dig that has not been closed for more than a month.
