What is my blood group? Man asks CIC 22.5.2018 General News
What is my blood group? A man posed this bizarre but "serious" question to the Central Information Commission by way of an RTI plea after tests threw up different results about his blood type. Rahul Chitra, through an acquaintance, had filed an RTI application addressed to the Medical Council of India (MCI). The plea included reports of tests conducted at different government hospitals and private labs which gave "completely different results" about his blood group. Some tests revealed his RH factor was positive, while it was found negative in others, he claimed. Rhesus (Rh) factor is an inherited protein found on the surface of red blood cells.

Whistleblowers act needed to protect RTI users: Aruna Roy 13.5.2018 General News
There is a necessity for a whistleblowers act to protect RTI users as the system has strategised to stall free flow of information to disempower and stop such activists, says Aruna Roy, who spearheaded the Right to Information Act movement. She also feels that there is still a need to see the RTI as a larger democratic and people's constitutional tool to make power truthful and accountable and put pressure on the political establishment, which it cannot ignore or distort. According to Roy, the RTI has brought in an architecture where we are enabled to change from a culture of secrecy to one of transparency. However, the system ever conscious and jealous of its power, has strategised to stall the free flow of information, to disempower and stall RTI users. More than 70 of them have died, for exposing corruption and preserving democratic rights, the former IAS officer who resigned from the service to work with peasants and workers in rural Rajasthan told PTI. Roy, who in 1990 co-founded
