Of late, RTI had become a nuisance of sorts. Number of RTI applications asking for silly / classified / dangerous information had been rising steadily. Rethinking was certainly overdue. Commission should have been empowered to submit some sort of penalty / punishment upon those asking for frivolous information.
This particular Bill is merely focused on removing some anomalies w.r.t. to service conditions of ICs. These lacunae were intentionally left unaddressed by Congi Govt. to allow scope of manipulations. Bill deserved to be accepted. more  
There was. 5 year term for the Commissioners. The Act as amended now, the Government will have the power to fix the term .
In effect, they will be controlled by the central Government. In the amendment it's not as if the term has been reduced, but is now at the mercy of the Government.
90% that goes to the Commissioners is against the Government. How can Commissioners act impartially if their terms are not fixed ? It is like removing the teeth. Their terms should be fixed, and not left at the mercy of any Government, so that they don't live in fear of loosing their jobs. more  
A layman's question: Is the Amendment detrimental to the original bill ? more  
RTI has become a great tool for getting the information regarding misdeeds of the political bosses as well as the BADA babus. Any dilution of the RTI act will empower misdeeds by these people. It should not be allowed. more
