People told to make use of RTI Act

Staff Correspondent

HASSAN: The Right to Information Act is a powerful weapon aimed at providing transparency in administration, said zilla panchayat Chief Executive Officer S.T. Anjan Kumar. Inaugurating a workshop on “Right to Information Act, 2005” here on Thursday, organised by the Administrative Training Institute, Mysore, he said in a democratic system, officials are to work in coordination with people's representatives.

The Act helps people get justice. Like our rights and duties, it is important to follow the provisions enshrined in the RTI Act too, he added. Mr. Kumar recalled that as early in 1766, the influence of the right to information could be seen in Sweden.
