JAMUGURIHAT, Feb 17 � The Right to Information (RTI) Act, 2005 was introduced in the country to provide vital information of public interest to any person seeking it within a timeframe.

But the Act has allegedly become an eyewash only as information sought under the Act is denied to the seeker for months together. A certain journalist had sought some information on the National Highway (four-lane construction at Naduar) by submitting an application to the Sonitpur DC on September 12, 2014.

The State Public Information Officer, through a letter, had informed the applicant that he would get the information within 20 days, but till date, the journalist has not received the required information.

A reminder was sent by the applicant, but nothing has come out of it as yet. Such delays will only discredit the RTI Act and may lead it to becoming only a farce.
