NCPRI Convention on the RTI to be held in Hyderabad from November 30

On behalf of NCPRI, we would like to invite you to participate in the RTI Convention to be held in Hyderabad from November 30-December 2, 2009.

The first day of the convention has a focus on Youth, RTI and Democracy. In the following two days, 1st and 2nd December the Southern regional convention on the RTI will begin with plenaries and thematic workshops conducted by experts to discuss more closely the utility and relevance of RTI with regard to cases of human rights,
employment, politics, environment and so on; as well as share experiences. The Hyderabad Central University has kindly offered its premises for the occasion.

The Convention will be a great opportunity for all of us to share our experiences on the Right to Information. Since representatives of various campaigns and groups working on the RTI from across the country will participate in this Convention, it will also work as a platform for all of us to network with like-minded groups and
individuals and take our work forward. In the past year, the issue of amendments to the RTI Act has cropped up time and again. Lately, the 'rumours' have taken more definite shape with both the President and the Prime Minister declaring their intent to bring in amendments. We look upon this meet as an opportunity to also develop concrete strategies to oppose any change to the RTI legislation. We hope you and representatives from your campaign, group and or organisation can join us for the Convention.
