Web volunteering – proactive information disclosure by government

Dear Friends,

The Right to Information Act of 2005 mandates the disclosure of certain kinds of information by all government agencies. We have an opportunity to review government websites and make suggestions about the information gaps on government websites.

Central Information Commissioner Mr. Shailesh Gandhi has agreed to consider these suggestions for recommendation with the respective Public authorities for implementation.

If you would like to volunteer in the effort to increase the information disclosure by government agencies, kindly let us know by emailing Please feel free to share it with your friends as well.

Regards, Veena
