At Kenja, we provide you with authentic, immutable and easy access to information from all the ministries, agencies and departments to make you contribute to good governance.
Every citizen has the right to access any government information for transparency, accountability and to eliminate secrecy within the government. This is called the Right to Information (RTI). Getting this information becomes difficult because nobody is responsible for sharing this information in the ministries, departments and agencies. As a result, individual employees take the responsibility in return for cash compensation far above the required application fees. Without paying, one will not get the information needed. Also, sometimes, these ministries, departments or agencies get burnt, destroying the information available.
It is difficult to access this information.
The documents get destroyed when it has the potential of going scandalous
Not knowing who to consult to receive the information.
Lack of Staffing and absence of officers in charge
Every year around six million applications are filed under RTI Act
Frivolous RTI applications
Enriching individuals who have access to this information
