Access to information is indispensable to the functioning of any true democracy. An Indian citizen's right to information is guaranteed by Constitution of India and implicitly embedded in his right to the freedom and expression. Bringing together the major aspects of the Right to Information Act 2005, this book presents a clear and concise introduction to:

-the evolution of the Act and the various privileges conferred under it,

- the procedures involved in seeking information,

- the duties of information suppliers, and

- the kinds of information which are exempted from disclosure.

Through in-depth comparative analyses of the law in various other parts of the world, it captures the strengths and drawbacks of the RTI Act, its success stories, and suggests policy measures to improve its implementation.
