The international day of Right to Information (RTI) is being marked in Nepal for the first time with various programmes in the capital.

 

Freedom Forum Nepal organised a silent rally from Baneshor to Maitighar to mark the day, which is also called the Freedom of Information day.

 

The day – September 28 - is being celebrated as Right to Information Day throughout the world since 2002.

 

The day has been marked after the legislature parliament passed the Right to Information Act this July which guarantees that any citizens have access to information stored in any public bodies.

 

Around 68 countries around the world have legal provisions protecting the right to information of their citizens. nepalnews.com ia Sept 28 07

      Hello,
      I require help on co-operative issue. I had filed the RTI with the PIO, Dy registrar of co-op societies seeking information on affairs of society.
      The PIO has replied stating that the information I am seeking is available with co-operative society. My query is:
      1] Can PIO direct an applicant to private body for information?
      2] The society in question comes under the jurisdiction of the PIO, since PIO is public authority and co-operative society a private body, is it not duty of PIO to seek information from society and give it to me? How can PIO direct me back to society? This is RTI application, either I have to appeal or I have to forego. I cannot complaint against reply. So I want to approach FAA, under what grounds can I?
      3] What kind of violation PIO has committed by directing me back to private society? 
      4] Does co-operative society come under the purview of RTI ACt?
      Your views are appreciated. I am fighting lone battle with corrupt system.

      Can the General Diary of the police station where particulars of "All the details in r/o criminals arrested and entry of arrival/departure of all enrolled police officers on duty with nature of their duties, duty performed and places visited etc."   are maintained be inspected and photo copies sought from a particular police station under RTI?
      Is there any particular clause/section that needs to be quoted for inspection under RTI? Any format available for inspection under RTI?
