An online workshop on Right to Information Act is being organized by NAHRD from 16.06.2022 to 17.06.2022.

The object of the workshop is to appraise the CPIOs, Appellate Authorities, Nodal Officers, Law Officers and their facilitating officers about the features of RTI Act, latest judgments of the superior courts and decisions of the CIC on the subject. The program has been designed keeping in view of the mandatory requirements under the RTI Act that Govt.

Needless to add that inapt handling of the RTI requests severely hampers the efficiency of the organization.

Provisions & Procedure under RTI Act, 2005

Personal & third party information under the Act

Roles & functions of various officials (CPIOs, AAs, Nodal Officers, etc.) in implementing the act

Improvement in the drafting skills to minimize the number of appeals
