Budgam: Officials in central district Budgam said that the people have right to know about the functioning of government offices and the officers are duty bound to provide them requisite information. This was stated at a function organised by J&K RTI Foundation at Magam to commemorate the 8th anniversary of J&K RTI Act 2009.
Speaking on the occasion, tehsildar Magam Syed Altaf Hussain Musvi said all PIOs should provide information to the applicant in time. Naib-tehsildar Abdul Majeed said that RTI was the key to transparency but it cannot solve people’s grievances all the time.
Chairman J&K RTI Foundation, Irfan Banka called upon the government to effectively implement the proactive disclosures policy across all government offices in the state.
