The department of Personnel and Training issued an office memorandum in October 2014 stating that RTI responses to be uploaded online. This would have been a major breakthrough in reducing huge paperwork under RTI by means of providing RTI responses readily on website. It would have also ushered unprecedented levels of transparency. However, more than two and a half years since the memorandum was issued, no website of any ministry has complied. The Department of Personnel and training has uploaded only 2 responses on its website and hence remains in non-compliance of its own memorandum.
Land Records Management is another key project aimed at digitisation of government records. Digital India Land Records Modernisation Programme (DILRMP), a UPA-I programme aims to modernize management of land records, minimize scope of land/property disputes, enhance transparency in the land records maintenance system, and facilitate moving eventually towards guaranteed conclusive titles to immovable properties in the country. The BJP government has doubled the budget of Digital India Land Records Modernisation Programme (DILRMP), a UPA-I programme to modernise computerise land records, and increase transparency. The programme has seen slow progress.
In the light of nearly zero progress on the project of digitisation of RTI responses and slow progress on land records management, the performance against this promise has been classified as “Inadequate Progress”.
