Right to information-A step forward for better governance
3:00PM to 5:00PM
SDPI’s Seminar Hall
It is believed that practical democracy should be founded on the concept of an informed public in order to its meaningful participation in the governance of the country. Access to information is also vital instrument of societal revolution and this citizens’ right to access to information helps in achieving the good governance. Besides, apart from ensuring greater transparency, it also acts as a deterrent against the arbitrary exercise of public powers. The Right to Information Bill passed by the National Assembly which is seen as a crucial step forward towards better and pro-people governance. To discuss the prospects of improved governance through RTI, SDPI has arranged seminar ‘Right to information-A step forward for better governance’.
