RTI programme concludes
Jammu Dec 5: The State Information Commissioner Nazir Ahmad today said stated that the J&K RTI Act, 2009, will be successful only when its implementation is driven by the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
The Commissioner was delivering the valedictory address at the end of the three-day training of trainers on the J&K RTI Act organised by Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) and Sangarsh RTI Movement at the Institute of Engineers, Jammu.
“RTI Act is a preventive deterrent to check irregularities, scams, and corruption, unlike vigilance which essentially provides for punitive action. As the saying goes prevention is better than cure, RTI as a preventive measure can act as a deterrent,” he said.
