Earlier this year the government proposed some changes to the RTI rules, which has caused concern to activists. Once passed, the RTI Rules 2017 will replace the RTI Rules 2012.

The proposed rules were put out on the DoPT website for comments, and many say they have written to the department with their suggestions. Two of the most worrying changes in the rules are the provisions that proceedings pending before the commission shall abate on the death of the appellant and that the Commission may allow an appellant to withdraw an appeal if the matter has not been finally heard or a decision or order not been pronounced already by the Commission.
