In today’s world, where the right to information is a fundamental right protected under Article 19 of the Constitution, the flow of information has also become a much smoother and faster process. The wide reach of the internet and other means of accessing information doesn’t guarantee that everyone will know what they should know. The focus should also be on the language of the information so that everyone who reads understands its object. This article critically analyses such a movement that fosters the need for plain language in our laws and relevant legal documents to make them more accessible.
