RTI is an extremely powerful tool which ensures transparency of the government processes and rests with every Indian citizen to be used when the need arises. However, there are instances when you can’t exercise RTI. Filing an RTI is, however, is a slightly challenging task as there are a number of formalities that need to be followed. That's why it is important to prepare a good draft of an RTI application before submitting it. Therefore, Hoot Welfare Society has come up with this internship program spreading over 3 Weeks to make students learn the importance of the same and how to draft a good RTI application.
