The RTI system of  our country is in news for all wrong reasons. The system which  started amid a lot of applause is  now crumbling and  staring at a break down.

There are more 2 lakhs RTI cases which are pending with Information Commissioners, according to a report.

The developing states in our country face a serious staff crunch in the Information Commission and the system lacks an active mechanism, a news report said.

The commanding positions of the information commission in key states like Goa, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana are miserable.  Moreover, the state commissions in Goa and Assam have an embarrassing situation, as in Goa no one has been appointed in power since Leela Mehendale retired as the Chief Information Commissioner two months ago.

In Assam the commissioner was appointed in December 2014 but the work is still in the pending mode.

According to the RTI Act, the commission should have a Chief Commissioner and can have 10 information commissioners. As of now, the states like Jharkhand, Odisha, Meghalaya and Sikkim are running the system with just one commissioner.

The sources say that UP is the only state which has filled up the full quota. Haryana has nine commissioners other than a chief. Punjab and Andhra have eight commissioners besides the chief information commissioner.

Miss India first runner-up Meenakshi Chaudhary, who hails from Haryana, says that her state has done an excellent job in bringing an equality between girls and boys with the help of government and this has shown amazing results in all fields.

“My state has really done an excellent job, especially with the help of government. So now we really can’t say that girls are less because they are actually working so hard to bring the equality in terms of boys and girls, in terms of gender.

“Time has proven itself that girls are not less than anybody, specifically in my state Haryana. You see in terms of sports, beauty pageants, I think Haryana has left a mark with Manushi Chillar, with Phogat sisters. We’ve proved our mark in each and every field,” Meenakshi told IANS in an interview here.

She was present to launch Sephora’s store at Oberoi Mall, Goregaon, here on Saturday.

With a presence in cities such as New Delhi, Noida, Gurugram, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Chandigarh, Bengaluru and Pune, this would be Sephora’s 17th store in the country.

Coming from an Army family, she says that her life is completely changed post winning the title.
