National Campaign For Peoples Right To Information
New Delhi
I have been closely associated with the Right to Information movement in India since the year 2000 and am a co-convenor of the NCPRI (http://righttoinformation.info/). The NCPRI played a pivotal role in campaigning for an effective Right to Information Act in India. NCPRI has been advocating for a series of anti-corruption and grievance redress measures to tackle corruption and redress grievances of people - the Lokpal & Lokayuktas Act, the Whistle Blowers’ Protection Act and the Grievance Redress Bill.
I am also associated with a grassroots group called 'Satark Nagrik Sangathan- SNS' (Citizens Vigilance Initaitive) which works with a mandate to promote transparency and accountability in government functioning and to encourage active participation of citizens in governance. SNS has pioneered the effort of using the RTI Act to make legislators more responsive and accountable. www.snsindia.org
In 2014, I co-authored a study on the implementation of the RTI Act in India, titled ‘Peoples' Monitoring of the RTI Regime in India 2011-13’. www.rti-assessment.com/
