Kochi, Nov 2 (ANI): The e-filing of RTI conceived by the Kerala State IT mission will make Kerala the first state in India to facilitate online RTI queries.
As the work is in progress training is being imparted to all Akshaya centres, the state's grassroot level ICT centres.
The project is expected to be launched this month at the Secretariat of General Administration Department (GAD).
Being launched under the e-district programme, the service will make electronic network available across the state with GAD working as the nodal office through all the Akshaya Centres as the source point enabling people to file on their ease.
A fee of rupee 10 will be charged on each application filed online. Once confirmed the application will be routed through Akshaya centres to the Public Information Officers of the concerned department.
The Information Officers then will be provided with digital signatures to accept the application.
The status of the application at each stage will be messaged to the applicant. One will have the choice to opt for the response as soft or hard copy.
State IT Mission is also planning to increase the number of Akshaya centres in the state from 2,500 to 3,500. by Juhan Samuel (ANI)
