RTI Report Card

Babus and Information officers, better take the RTI applications seriously ..Else settle for a poor pay hike. In what could change the way the Govt officials share information with public ,the Karnataka Information Commission(KIC) has asked the Government to link performance appraisals of officers to thier attitude towards implementing the RTI Act.

In its First ever report to the Government , the KIC has reccomended that specific Columns be included in the annual Confidential Reports of officers to show how they treat applications under RTI Act. " The self assessement report of the Public Information officers must include information regarding the number of RTI applications receibed by them and thier disposal." The report submitted to the Govt states.
