The sooner political parties adapt to RTI, the more credible they could become. To that extent our democracy will be robust and responsive. The  Government’s  argument  that RTI  will  affect  the  functioning  of  political  parties,  if  Central  Information  Commission’s  order  is implemented  is  imaginary. UPA Government even considered of an Ordinance to bail out political parties from RTI. The article examines why it is important to bring political parties under the ambit of RTI Act.
