Since huge amount of ‘Public Assets’ are used by the Centre and State Governments for contracting PPP Projects… It is but natural that People act as Watchdogs to ensure accountability in the expenditure of PPP projects V/s benefits accrued to society at large.
Therefore while signing contracts the Centre & State Governments must ensure that the PROJECT comes within the perview of RTI Act 2005.
PPP Projects Viz RTI Act 2005
During RTI Convention 2010, it was opined that ‘Public Private Partnerships’ (PPP) projects ought to be under RTI Act 2005.
