RTI Amendment Bill passed by Rajya Sabha

Parliament on 25th July 2019 approved the amendment to the RTI Act, with Rajya Sabha on passing it after negating an Opposition-sponsored motion to send it to a House committee for greater scrutiny. The motion was negated by 117 members voting against the motion and 75 members voting in favour.
The Amendment Bill stipulates that the terms of office of the Central and State Information Commissioners (CIC/SIC) will be determined by the Central government as against the existing provision which guarantees a fixed term of five years or up to an age of 65 years. In addition, the Bill also proposes that their salaries, allowances, and other terms and conditions of service will be determined by the Central government.
