Based on our experiences, and to assist researchers, academicians, civil society organisations and other interested members of the society, CHRI has prepared this handbook for facilitating access to information on prisons by using the Right to Information Act 2005. This handbook provides basic information on filing right to information requests, as well as step by step guides on the process and procedures that one must be aware of while filing such requests to receive information related to prisons. It also includes a database on relevant public information officers (PIOs), sample applications and a basic guide on what kind of information can be sought from relevant authorities.
