The Right to Information (RTI) had been recognised as a constitutionally protected right in a plethora of decisions delivered by the Supreme Court even prior to the enactment of the Right to Information Act, 2005. The 2005 Act lays down the contours of the said right as well as defines what falls within the broad definition of information in the public domain to which the people, the sovereign of India have a right of access.
