The Minister also said that RTI online portal will curb delays in responding to the RTIs.

The Secretary, DoPT Shri B. P.

Moreover, the RTI Online Portal with minor customization has been implemented in Maharashtra while work is under process in some other States/UTs. As close to 90% internet usage is through mobile, Mobile App for RTI is planned to be rolled out in near future. For awareness creation, a new audio spot along with the existing spot are being aired on All India Radio w.e.f. 1st March, 2017 in Hindi & 10 regional languages. New building of CIC is under construction and provision of providing Video Conferencing facility for disposal of 2nd appeals/complaints is there so that personal appearances may be dispensed with in most cases.
