Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar has said that Narendra Modi Government is fully committed to transparency and accountability in the flow of information relating various government departments.

He said, as a result of its commitment to strengthen genuine and free flow of information, the government has encouraged suo motu dissemination of maximum information by Government Departments in order to reduce number of RTIs. 

In a tweet, Mr Javadekar said, there is a deliberate and mischievous attempt by a section to malign the government. The Minister said, there is no merit in their criticism as the amendment to RTI Act in no way compromises the autonomy of Information Commission. 

Meanwhile, Congress Parliamentary Party leader  Sonia Gandhi has alleged that the Centre is hell-bent on subverting the  RTI Act, which she said, is now  on the brink of extinction.

She said in statement, over the past decade and more, 60 lakh of countrymen have used RTI and helped usher in a new culture of transparency and accountability administration at all levels. Lok Sabha had yesterday passed the bill amending the Right To Information Act.
