Hyderabad: The Centre has listed amendments to the RTI Act in the Monsoon Session of Parliament, which is scheduled to commence on July 18, raising concerns that the legislation may be diluted. The contents of the amendment Bill have not been made public so far.

The RTI activists across the country are planning to hold dharnas if the Bill is taken up. Civil rights organisations have also joined the bandwagon. The National Campaign for People’s Right to Information has decided to hold protests across the country on Wednesday.

 

The National Alliance of People’s Movements (NAPM), Anti-Corruption Team (ACT), National Right to Food Campaign, the National Federation of Indian Women and state level RTI campaigns will also join the protests.

The NCPRI said in a statement: “It’s a matter of grave concern that the government has refused to make public the contents of the amendment Bill. This manner of secrecy and lack of any public consultation is a violation of the Pre-Legislative Consultation Policy and undermines basic democratic principles.”
