    Section 4(1) of the RTI Act, 2005, requires every public authority to make suo moto disclosure of information of the nature listed under sub-section (1)(b). The Departments are also required to analyse information which is sought most often by RTI applicants and provide it on their website as suo moto disclosure. In pursuance of this provision, DOPT has further directed that each Ministry/ Public Authority should get its proactive disclosure package audited by a third party every year from the respective training institutes under each Ministry/ Department/ Public Authority and submit the findings to the Chief Information Commission (CIC). NIPFP has been assigned by the CIC to conduct third party audits of 78 Public Authorities under the Department of Revenue, MoF, GoI. So far, NIPFP has completed the assignment for 2019-20, and since it would be an annual affair, NIPFP will carry on the work for the coming years 2021-22.
