Court's directive to government on RTI

The Orissa High Court on Thursday admitted a PIL pertaining to casual approach by the Orissa government as well as the Central government in implementing Right to Information (RTI) Act in the State and issued notices to both the governments to file counters within two weeks. Sanjib Kumar Satapathy, a social activist of Kalahandi district, has approached the High Court stating that it was mandatory as per the Act for every public authority to fulfil certain obligations within 120 days from the
enactment of the Act. "Provisions of the Act clearly say that every public authority should suo moto disseminate certain basic information of their organisation to public and shall make constant endeavour to upgrade the information at regular intervals through various means of communications, including Internet," the petitioner says adding that these provision has not been implemented in the State yet.
