Northeast India is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse regions in Asia. Each of the seven states of the region has its distinct culture and tradition. Before the British the region had been politically independent but, particularly Assam, Manipur and Tripura, enjoyed cultural linkage with the main stream India from ancient time.
Home to many tribes and groups, the region is highly sensitive due to its strategic geo-political location sharing over 2,000 km of border with Bhutan, China, Myanmar (Burma) and Bangladesh. It is connected to the rest of India by a narrow 20-km wide corridor of land.

Judicial Reforms & India Whistle Blower’s Action Group

Natural Justice, Human Rights and Human Dignity

December 29th, 2005


Hon. Shri Tarun Gogoi
Chief Minister, Assam

Others in GoAssam State,

This is V. M. Kumaraswamy MBA, in business since 1971. Founder and Moderator of India’s largest e-governance yahoo-group under the title eGovINDIA. You can reach this group at

eGovINDIA is a group dedicated to promoting true e-governance in India, consisting of members from all walks of life from within INDIA and the World over. Many State Ministers and senior bureaucrats of India are members of this group. We do have lawyers, social activists, freelance writers and journalists in the group. The group is meant for serious activists only. Casual members are not allowed to join the group. The group is also moderated by an Indian Administrative Service (IAS) Officer. As on date, the ! group has nearly 2680 members.

The focus of this group is true e-governance and use of open source technology in e-governance. The members of this forum have a passion to see a truly e-governed India, resulting in transparency and easy access to government services by the common man, notably the depressed class people (so called untouchables), women and people living in far flung and difficult areas of India.

`Right to Information Act will empower common people’. An inalienable right conferred on citizens. The eGovINDIA and INDIA RTI Consortium strongly advocate that ALL Governance in INDIA needs NRTI Act 2005 implemented effectively and properly to follow RTIA which means Responsibility, Transparency, Integrity and Accountability.

The RTI legislative intent is clear; People are entitled to know how their money is spent. The onus is on all of us to make the Act work. In effect, therefore, the right conferred on the citizen is an exhaustive one. It allows them to assess and examine every government decision, to study the reasons recorded by the government for taking a particular step, and to utilise information so gathered to ensure that government acts in a transparent and just manner.

Indeed, the preamble to the RTI Act puts it well when it says, “democracy requires an informed citizenry and transparency of information” and adds these “are vital to its functioning and also to contain corruption and to hold Governments and their instrumentalities accountable to the governed”.
