The department has asked a private company (Luminous Infoways) to develop a software package for a central monitoring mechanism to track requests under RTI. This software is truly impressive, allowing I & PR to track requests across government through all phases from the initial application for information to the response of individual PIOs as well as the status of appeals. The software allows departments to upload information relating to 17 fields covered by the suo motu disclosure provisions of Section 4 (1b) of the RTI Act, although the information actually provided was scanty in the case of some departments. As a result, the INPR department issued a circular on September 23, 2009 asking all public authorities to provide a report on the extent of their compliance with the suo-moto disclosure requirements of the RTI Act or risk disciplinary proceedings against them. The key issue here will be change management: persuading public authorities to use and update this software package on a regular basis, thus enabling INPR to track the performance of both individual public authorities and PIOs under the RTI Act, as well as compliance with their suo-motu disclosure obligations.

CMM for RTI - a laudable effort indeed. Thanks for the initiative
Under Secretary, GA(AR) Department
RTI Portal (www.rtiorissa.gov.in) by Govt. of Orissa is really helpful to disseminate as much as information to public under RTI Act, 2005. This will make Government more transparent. Wish all success.

The RTI Act is very useful to the people who are very general. In this system every one could get information about a govt. servant. And also it helps to know about the person who gives the duplicate certificate for service. Ok thank you RTI Act.

This is a very attractive and good step taken by Nodal Department for tracking the Public Authority Government of Orissa must have to take necessary steps for implement this system completely. Is it possible for all the Departments to publish the list of Public Authority under their administrative control with their contact name and numbers from directorate offices to field level offices? Because due to this information the Citizen can able to contact the offices without any directory.

This site is very useful for the general public to get information under RTI Act 2005 and provide facility to submit RTI application to any Public authority at any time at any place. Necessary steps may be taken to facilitate online tendering of application fees under RTI Act 2005 by the help of Debit Card and Credit Card to get the main objective of this portal

This site is the initiative of the state govt. which is worth emulating by the other states. As the main problem for submitting RTI application now is mode of payment which seems to be addressed by the 1st and 2nd meeting of the committee by recommending for acceptance of easier payment mode I think now the main objective of this site to centralize all the RTI related issues under state will succeed.
