Lot of "environmental and economic cost" can be avoided if the public authorities start declaring information under section 4 of the Right to Information (RTI) Act, chief information commissioner Satynanda Mishra said on Sunday.

Section 4 of the RTI act directs all public authorities to suo motu disclose information through websites and by way of boards giving certain information related to the departments. Many queries under the RTI Act pertain to such information, which can easily be got from websites or boards.

"It is in nobody's interest that information is provided on being asked for, which involves a huge amount of environmental and economic cost," Mishra said emphasising the importance of section 4 of the RTI Act.
