The common response of many in public to any social initiative is that “it is not going to work”, “the system is too corrupt”, “it is all very good, but you are wasting your time”.
Many people have same opinion of Right to Information Act. That it is a ‘good’ thing but it is too much trouble, or it is not going to work. Have you ever wondered why the Chief Justice of India wants his own office out of purview of RTI? If RTI was such a innocuous, powerless tool, then no official will have to fear anything from an RTI application, right?
Given below is an example of police officials who gave wrong or misleading information in response to RTI applications. Chattisgarh DGP has taken severe action against 22 police officers and marked, “Stark Criticism” in their service records which will affect their future promotions.

I have ordered a sony experia E1 mobile for a price of 12999/- from 100 best buy.com and they promised 100% cash back for this in the form of points. I have cancelled the product on the same day I ordered and requesting for refund as the same product is available 50% less . Now these guys are telling that we cannot refund the product and we will refund in the form of credit points. ( Even If I take the product also the same credit points will be credited as there is a 100% cash back offer). Please let me know how to proceed about this. I fed up calling customer care executive to refund and I dont have any information of the product ordered except in my credit card statement. Even after ordering the prodcut also I have not received any mail and If I login into their website also I couldnot see the products which I have ordered. Please help me.
Read their cancellation and refund policy and proceed according to that. Since you made a purchase you also have some obligations.
If I read any offer which says 100% cash back offer, I will proceed very very carefully after that. Why would someone be giving you something for free? Mostly people are making decisions on impulse and regretting it later when they are forced to read the fine print.
