Awareness prog on RTI held at Kargil college
Kargil: To create awareness about Right to Information Act in far flung areas of J&K, RTI Movement in collaboration with Common Wealth Human Rights Initiative organized organised an awareness programme in RTI Law at Degree College Kargil.
According to a communiqué, the programme was attended by many students and faculty members.
J&K RTI Movement convener, Dr. Muzaffar Bhat explained the provisions of J&K RTI Act 2009 and central RTI Act 2005. He stressed upon the college teachers and students to use RTI for making the authorities accountable. “Kargil is a far flung area and remains cut off from rest of the state for nearly six months. Lots of funds reach to this place, but there are no checks and balances with the result corruption is rampant in this region of the state,” he said.
