Recently came across this provision in RTI act. If implemented properly, authorities are expected to publish all details in proactive manner in public domain, and we as individuals may not have to chase officials for approved layout maps, license details, EDC details, approvals, master road development, infrastructure project budget sanctions etc.

Going forward, Kindly include point in your respective RTI's to publish the information on points requested in public domain.

Guidelines issued for sou motu disclosure under RTI Act

The Haryana government has issued guidelines to all administrative secretaries regarding the implementation of suo motu disclosure under Section 4 of the Right To Information (RTI) Act, 2005.

An official spokesperson said the purpose of suo motu disclosure under Section 4 is to place large amount of information in the public domain on a proactive basis to make the functioning of the public authorities more transparent and reduce the need for filing individual RTI applications.

"The government has decided to issue guidelines on the basis of a report of a task force constituted by the central government on suo motu disclosures under the RTI Act," the spokesperson said, adding that the sub-section 4(2) of the RTI Act requires every public authority to take steps to provide as much information suo motu to the public at regular intervals through various means of communication, including internet so that the public have minimum resort to use the Act to obtain information.

Information related to procurement made by public authorities, including publication of notice or tender enquiries, corrigendum, and details of bid awards detailing the name of the supplier of goods or services being procured or the works contracts entered or any such combination of these and the rate and total amount at which such procurement or works contract, is to be done should be disclosed, the spokesperson added.
