akhilesh yadav posted a topic in RTI in MediaSrinagar: The state government’s attitude towards its official language, Urdu, can be gauged from the fact that it is yet to translate the Jammu and Kashmir Right to Information Act manual into it. To make it easy for people to understand the law, the governments were asked to disseminate information about it in user-friendly guides written in official languages of the states.

karira posted a topic in RTI in Media[h=1]HC directs DVAC to upload its crime manual on its website[/h] The Madras High Court bench here has directed the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti-Corruption to upload its crime manual on its website within six weeks, rejecing DVAC's contention that it was a privileged document and could not be made public. The manual should contain details about Government instructions and guidelines to investigating officers relating to corruption cases, Justice M Sathyanarayanan said in his order said yesterday on a batch of petitions filed by some public servants who wanted to prove that the investigating officer in the corruption case against them had not followed procedures prescribed under the manual. The DVAC had refused to issue a copy of the manual to them, following which they moved the High Court. The counsel for the petitioners submitted that the DVAC could not insist on keeping the manual secret much to the disadvantage of the accused, who required it desperately to establish their innocence during the course of trial. The judge said the DVAC was not entitled to claim that it was a privileged document and could not be made public. "We are in the era of Right to Information Act and especially when the Central Bureau of Investigation itself had hosted its crime manual on its website, why can't the DVAC do the same", he asked. The State Information Commission had directed the DVAC on November 28,2011 to furnish a copy of the manual to an RTI applicant. Justice D Hariparanthaman had then dismissed the petition against the Commission's order in December 2012 and upheld the Information Commission's order. The judge pointed out that G Rajagopalan, counsel for Tamil Nadu Information Commission, had also submitted that the manual was not exempted from disclosure.

RTI cracks language barrier - RTI User manuals in Santhali, seven other tribal tongues As reported by PRIYA ABRAHAM in The Telegraph on April 2 , 2008 Bhubaneswar, April 1: In a pioneering effort, the state information commission and the Academy of Tribal Dialects and Culture plan to publish a manual on the Right to Information Act in eight tribal languages. In what is being touted as the first-of-its-kind venture in the country, the manual strives to explain the basics of the RTI in eight languages, including Santhali, Saora, Kui, Kuvi, Koya, Desia, Sadri and Munda. â€œNo matter how much is said or spoken, members of the tribal community tend to bypass the RTI. The best way to help people remember is to bring out a written manual,â€ said A.B. Ota, the director of the SC and ST Research and Training Institute. Orissa has the third-largest concentration of tribals in the country. According to 2001 census, Orissaâ€™s tribal population amounts to 8,145,081, constituting 62 communities, including 13 primitive ones. Thus, the manual makes perfect sense in Orissa. The manual manuscripts were prepared by the academy at a 10-day translation workshop. â€œWe had invited tribals from selected pockets, who knew both Oriya and their mother tongue. Most were grassroots functionaries working in tribal sub-plan areas,â€ said Ota. â€œThey were youth club volunteers and members of self-help groups,â€ he added. Translations over, the eight manuscripts were submitted to the information commission that approved it for publication. The first set of manuals is ready and would be soon sent for distribution. The manuals would be available through Soochna Mahasabhas, where government officials, employed in tribal welfare departments such as Integrated Tribal Development Agency, micro-projects, Adivasi schools and Kanyashrams, would also be educated about the law. â€œThis is an effort to make tribal people aware about the RTI. Once they know about this powerful tool, they will be able to assert themselves better,â€ stressed the former state information commissioner, Radhamohan.
