Right to information is an important milestone in the path of reforming India’s system of governance towards a transparent and corruption free nation and in the shift of secrecy to openness, the Right to Information Act has made remarkable impact in the whole governance of this country. Right to information is an enabling right, empowering right and also rights multiplier right. It strengthens the ability of a person to access many things to which he is entitled to but denied due to many reasons. It empowers the citizens to argue for their demands and to express them will more authentically and it also help them to attain other rights in its full contentment. The obligations under the international documents relating to RTI vests a duty on the signatory states to adopt laws to recognise the right and judicial or other remedies in case of violations. The Right to Information Act makes right to information a statutory right and the remedy, in case of violations, are mentioned under the Act. It establishes State and Central Information Commission in order to ensure the practical regime for the effective operation of the Act. But as in the case of judiciary, cases are piled up in all institutions established under this Act. People are using this Act effectively, but the information made available to the people? This study is an attempt to assess the working of one of the machineries, the Central Information Commission, provided under the Act to see to it that the rights are protected and to see that the free flow of information is happening in all the requests for information from the public authorities.
