The Right to Information Act, 2009 shines as a milestone in the path of Bangladesh’s democracy. This was enacted to empower the people and to ensure transparency and accountability in the government, autonomous and non-government and foreign aided organizations. This law recognizes the people’s right to obtain information. It also asks the authorities to preserve and disclose all kinds of information. This publication reviews some important parts of the act along with relevant examples. It aims to give conceptual direction to information providers and seekers, thus addressing both demand and supply aspects of information. The book has been published with the support of USAID-PROGATI.
