VIJAYAWADA: The names of retired IPS officer BV Ramana Kumar, retired IFS officer M Ravi Kumar and advocate Katta Janardhana Rao were cleared for appointment as RTI commissioners.

The selection committee consisting of CM N Chandrababu Naidu and Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu went through the applications submitted by several aspirants on Thursday before finalising the three names. Sources said that though leader of opposition YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is also a member of the selection committee, the government was forced to complete the process without him as he skipped all the three meetings citing his preoccupation with padayatra. The names will be referred to the Governor for his approval.

      Now public can view all GOs on internet
       
      As reported in Siasat, Friday, 13 June 2008

       
      Information, Technology and Communications Department (IT&C) has
      ensured that automatic uploading of Government Orders on the internet
      would take place henceforth.
       
      At the request of Andhra Pradesh Information Commission (APIC),
      Suresh Chand, Secretary, e-Governance, IT&C, spot tests were done on
      various department for some of the GOs issued and it was found that
      uploading was most thorough and comprehensive.
       
      A simple but very useful IT application ensures that each and every
      order issued by the departments are available for public viewing on
      the internet for instant dissemination.
       
      Earlier it was difficult to monitor whether the Government
      departments are putting GOs on the internet or not.
       
      The new system developed by IT&C, which is one of the first of its
      kind in the country, has inbuilt self-enforcing features that ensures
      the GO is made available for public view as soon as it is issued by
      the respective departments without any delay.
       
      Citizens can view GOs of all departments at www.ap.go.in/goir. The
      State Information Commission appreciated the initiative taken by IT&C
      Department in creating a mechanism which provides proactive
      disclosure of orders to citizens immediately.
