India is the 87th country in the world to have RTI. The concept is imported. Indian rulers cannot think of such progressive empowerment of we the people.....However, S/shri Aruna Roy [Rajashthan], Anna Hazare [Mahara], Arvind Kejriwal [Ex-IRS officer, Delhi], Shailesh Gandhi [ IIT engineer and industrialist in Mumbai ]etc are among the group which made it possible this in India. I quote
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change a nation; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
