I would like to start this thread to upload replies on RTI received with regard to development of Madurai. RTI is a powerful tool to keep a check on the functioning of bureaucracy. This thread would encourage others users to file RTI for the welfare of Madurai.

Many a time we dont find enough time in our busy day to day life to follow up on the half-baked responses. As a team we can make this task less herculean and more interesting :)

The site Your Adhikar offers online RTI filing system that can even be used by non-resident Indians.
I would encourage our members to file RTI to check the ills of our bureaucracy.

The forum RTI India helps new users file RTI.

1. Copy of the Document showing the proposed Master Plan of Madurai Airport, with extended runway and 3 terminals including one for international Cargo.

The above clause 8(1) deals with the security of the country and I wonder how a proposed Master plan concerns the security of the country!!!

I am surprised to find that Madurai West MLA has not sought any fund for constituency development for 2 years of his tenure.

The PIO deserves praise for sending a 35-page report of works undertaken by the MLAs in the RTI. When most PIOs/CPIOs conceal information and provide wrong information, this action of the PIO instills confidence that there are some true workers in Indian bureaucracy.

7 - Current status of Madurai-Tuticorin industrial corridor
