Get your answer scripts with RTI

The recent release of the JNTUH results took a toll on the students. It is shocking to see the number of backlogs a student is having. Having one backlog is so common that none are surprised. Two and three backlogs are a tad bit surprising and five is like the real thing to be considered. Students are confused on the results. Various questions like "What is the evaluation process?", "Who evaluated the answer sheets?", "How do we know if the process of correction is legitimate" are arising. So, how do we get the answers??
It is really simple. Just apply for "RTI".
RTI: Right to Information is an Act of the Parliament of India to provide for setting out the practical regime of the right to information for citizens.
Under the provisions of the Act, any citizen of India may request information from a "public authority" (a body of Government or "instrumentality of State") which is required to reply expeditiously or within thirty days.
