RTI stands for “Right to Information”. Right to Information is a fundamental right that every citizen has! Basically, the RTI gives you all the information that you want about the Govt. and what they are doing with your tax money!

You have the right to ask our Government, why the roads outside your house are not fixed? Why have you not received your “€œration card”€ as yet? Why is there so much garbage in your area that is not picked up etc.
