The Maharashtra government has passed a Government Resolution by the General Administration Department, last week, to effect the public inspection of government records in district-level offices and local bodies under the Right to Information Act (RTI) for two hours every Monday. 

The move was to reduce the number of first and second appeals under the Right to Information Act in order to access government records and also ensure that there is transparency in the dealings of the government, which would be upto public introspection. The GR also stated that the government records will be open to public introspection on every Monday between 3 P.M to 5 P.M and in case of a public holiday, inspection can be done the following day. Residents can access this facility in district offices and local bodies such as municipal corporations. 

RTI activists such as Anil Galgali have welcomed the move by the Fadnavis government but also suggested that including all departments under the government, especially the higher offices will only serve the purpose.
