New Delhi became the second state after Maharashtra to get its online portal, according to Hindustan Times reports. Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal inaugurated the portal on 10 July.  This announcement comes five days past the deadline that had been provided by the Delhi government.  

CM Kejriwal, a former RTI activist, emphasised the importance of transparency in government. He claimed that there is a need to put all relevant information online and that his government is working in that direction.

“For example, if the concerned department puts daily sales reports of the ration shops online, people won’t have to file RTIs to seek information. People of respective areas would be able to straightaway verify the claims. Similarly, the PWD can put measurement book and bills of all work online…As next step we will try to put all information online so that people won’t have to file RTIs,” Kejriwal said, speaking to the Hindustan Times.

Citizens would be able to file RTI and seek information related to 172 departments of the Delhi government including the office of the chief minister and his ministers.

The online portal has been developed by the National Informatics Centre (NIC). It would also enable the citizens to file applications, pay fees and receive replies online. One would also be able to track the status of RTI application.

The e-RTI application fee will have to be paid through net banking. Citizens can file the e-RTIs by logging at www.rtionline.delhi.gov.in.

One can also call at 011-23392726 and 011-23392421 for any queries related to the process of filing the RTI.
