RTI was brought about by the Government to address issues of the people. The act is people-centric and it does not believe in biases towards the higher authority or a financially and politically strong entity. Since it is made for the people, you will find that illiterate individuals can also file an RTI with simple and easy processes. The illiterate individual can seek help from the PIO. They will write their issue and read it out loud to them before submitting the RTI. This is a people-friendly approach and is an attempt to include the poverty-ridden people under this revolutionary act. Going to a PIO or posting the application via post office could be full of hassles.
