The study seeks to give the perspective of Right To Information (RTI Act 2005) from the lens of Central Public Information Officer (CPIO). Right to Information act is a fundamental human right of each individual. The famous French philosopher Michel Foucault once pronounced, power is derived from knowledge and information is the basic component of knowledge. Information makes men wise and it is competent enough to cope up with the modern world. In this way, it is the obligation of government to illuminate subjects about everyday happening whatever inside the government. The change from administration to great administration is conceivable, if there is probability of expanding participation of individuals in administration and free access of Information. By figuring it out this reality, Indian Parliament has passed Right to Information act, 2005 to make government, responsible, capable, effective and straightforward. This paper tries to feature the essential rules of RTI act, the connection between Right to Information Act 2005 and good governance and the issues relating to RTI act. In closing part, the paper gives some suggestions for fruitful working of RTI act.
