TN commission not facilitating access to info, say NGOs
The Tamil Nadu Right To Information Campaign (TNRTIC), a group of NGOs working in the area of the Right To Information (RTI) Act, on Wednesday criticised the State Information Commission for giving false information pertaining to the availability of order copies. Releasing a report here on a national-level study conducted by National RTI Awards Secretariat, a Delhi-based NGO, on the functioning of 28 information commissions from across the country, TNRTIC coordinator Ossie Fernandes said that the Tamil Nadu State Information Commission was not included in the study since it had given false information to an RTI application filed by the National RTI Awards Secretariat in June this year.
