    A FRAMEWORK FOR TRANSPARENCY AUDIT

    The RTI Act under section 4 provides a comprehensive framework for promoting openness in the functioning of the public authorities.

    While Section 4(1) (a) provides a general guideline for record management so that the information could be easily stored and retained, the sub-sections b,c, and d of Section 4 relate to the organizational objects and functions. Sub-sections (b), (c) and (d) of Section 4 of the RTI Act and other related information can be grouped under six categories; namely, 1-Organisation and function, 2- Budget and programmes, 3- Publicity and public interface, 4-E. governance, 5-Information as prescribed, and 6. Information disclosed on own initiative.
