RTI Information categorization – Submission and Retrieval Sy

Postby utkarsh_gupta » Mon May 23, 2011 8:05 am

A lot of public information has been gathered over the years by individuals and RTI activists on public records. The Project involves the researcher to create an where individuals can access the already available information to the public gathered by someone else. This website will allow searching the information on variety of keywords and categories. The project deals with categorization of the information and data input by the users.

This looks like a very useful project if the website is properly designed and marketed.
Could you please share the mockup of the site?

Hey Bharat,

Apologies for the late reply. I am designing the site on my local server. Plus am still in the planning phase. Though am thinking something on the lines of http://www.rtination.com. Please skim through!

Following are some of the things i am planning to implement:
a) Save the Users time by providing him with the appropriate RTI application if present in the interface archives, just by some keywords.
b) Draft for the user a sample RTI application. He/she only has to edit some details in the same.
c) Provide them an interface to upload and appropriately tag the RTI application and response to the application by the government/authority.

Your suggestions are always welcome.

how can you integrate it with some sort of government database to find out the address of the government office to send the RTI to?

What is the UI of this project going to be in?

How can this be accessed using Mobile?

What 'other' services/help this website would provide? Any other data or help related to RTI? Testimonials?

The RTI Application maybe addressed to a particular government offices but are sent to the PIOs (Public Information Officers). The database with the addresses of the same can be found.

Secondly, the User Interface would be on a website and an app of the same can be developed or a mobile website can be made.

Success stories/Replies received by the applicants/Difficulties faced can be uploaded by the users on the website. Also to begin with lots of such things are available on the internet.
