ABSTRACT
As Indian Constitution guarantees our privacy similar to right to life, is there any way out to secure our right to know. In the year 2005 an Act has been legislated in the form of Right to Information Act. But is it enough to ensure our right to know?. Another very controversial issue is what is a 'private' thing and what is 'public'. In between these two words our right to know has been stuck. This write up is a kind of looking glass to have a clearer idea of what are the drawbacks of RTI Act, 2005.
