From the first week of 2011 Right to Information applicants will receive SMS alerts on the status of the cases. As per the reports as of now a complaint or a petitioner will get three SMSs free from the commission - registration of case, hearing date and disposal.

If a petitioner needs more information on the status of the case on a regular basis, he will have to a pay 10 paise per every SMS received. The service will be launched on a trial basis on Friday.

The petitioner or respondent can sms their case number to 92123 57123 to get details of their case. In 2010, the KIC received 15,886 complaints out of which 6,690 have been disposed.
