The Right to Information (RTI) truck leaves the city of Pune, India and makes it way through all the neighboring towns and villages at a slow but steady pace. The main features of this truck are the placards hanging outside of it. Written in the local language, Marathi; they explain what the Indian RTI Act is and what it can do for citizens. The truck makes stops in local meeting places such as markets and town centers to educate citizens about RTI through videos and written materials.
RTI is considered to be widely used in the state of Maharashtra where this truck operates. On a recent trip, I understood just how prolific RTI in Maharashtra is.
