To mark the event, Justice Devashis Baruah symbolically filed the first online, paperless e-RTI application at Kohima Bench through the dedicated web portal.

Through the web portal, Indian citizens can now file their RTI Application and First Appeal online and to make payment for Fees, Copying Charges, etc. through online payment gateway.
