    RTI Act is a source of strength for all citizens as it would ensure timely response to their information needs on government functioning and lead to greater transparency in governance. ‘

    Right to Information’ (RTI) refers to the proper purpose of each citizen to access information held by or under the control of public authorities. Information is crucial for permanent governance because it reflects and captures Government activities and processes. If people don’t know what’s happening in their society, if the actions of these who rule them are hidden, then they can’t take a meaningful part in the affairs of the society.

    As transfer of cash does not required any registered gift deed.. So can I receive gift of any amount from my brother and mother?

    Do i just need to get these done in writing on plain paper. Please advise.

    what if amount is already with me.. do I need to transfer the amount first and than again ask them to credit in my account. please help…
