Telugu States have Less Awareness on RTI, Says Jannat Hussain

Jannat-HussainSpeaking at a seminar on the Right to Informatin Act (RTI), the Chief Information Commissioner Jannat Hussain said that the Telugu-speaking states lack awareness on the Act even after nine years of implementation.

He continued that it is the responsibility of the government to take measures to create awareness about the Act and its importance. He informed that about 90 countries in the world have forced this act to make their respective citizens informed.

“Every public authority shall publish the particulars of its organisation, functions and duties; the powers and duties of its officers and employees; the procedures followed in decision-making”, is one of the major provision of the RTI Act 2005, but this was not yet complied by some major government institutions, said State Information Commissioner C Madhukar Raj.
