Still waiting for your Passport? File a Passport RTI and get it faster?


The Right to Information Act, also known as RTI, is an act that helps to have a transparent government system in Indian agencies and departments. The Act came into existence in 2005, and since then, has grown in importance for concerned citizens to get answers from central and state government establishments, for matters that concern them. This further helps in building a better nation over time by keeping the government authorities on their toes.

But did you know that RTI can also help you not just get the answers to, but also speed some of the processes of government? Yes, for instance how many times have we heard that someone’s passport which was applied months back, hasn’t been delivered yet? Or there is no clear answer for the delay etc. Often times, people just run from pillar to post in search of answers, but not anymore. A simple Passport RTI can not just help you know the answer, but will also help you get your passport faster.
