IIPM Faculty Prasoon S Majumdar on 'RIGHT TO IRRITATE'

There are innumerable cases wherein we as a nation have always found a better way to abuse a law than to put it in the right use. After about 6 long decades, the law making bodies finally gave India the most awaited tool of accessing information – the Right To Information Act (RTI). On one hand, it allowed the common man to access information which was earlier privy to the government, on the other hand, the same law is perpetually abused by many to settle down personal scores. And such is the scale of the abuse that now people have gotten to thinking whether to curb the law, to some extent. Under no circumstances, the law should be curbed but then at the same time under no circumstances the abuse of such law should be permitted which can have very severe repercussions.
