Check out this recent report on President Kalam’s idea of an independent commission to tackle corruption. Its good to see that corruption has caught the attention of visible people like President. The Right to Information Act passed by the Government of India in Oct 2005 was great step in this direction. It will certainly help if the President influenced the Government to follow through and prevent any roadblocks for the implementation of the RTIA. Ironically, the RTIA appears to be stuck in bureaucracy with a huge backlog of cases!
