Nawanshahr, June 29
The basic spirit behind the Right to Public Information Act is to make the common man realise that he is the master in the democratic set-up and the proper implementation of the Act is the need of the hour for providing a transparent administration and strengthening the democratic set-up.

This was stated by Chief Public Information Commissioner Rajan Kashyap while underlining the importance of the proper implementation of the Act here today.

He was here to inaugurate the computerised information kiosk set up for providing detailed information to the public regarding various departments and other aspects of the district and release the brochure published by the district administration to make the people aware about the Act.

He said the commission had selected Nawanshahr and Mohali districts as model districts for the implementation of the Act in the district and the model would be replicated in other districts.

He added that the commission had received 300 complaints and appeals regarding denial of information, non-availability of timely information and distorted information, of which 60 had been settled.

Mr Kashyap also inaugurated a blood donation camp at Balachaur, about 20 km from here, during which 150 units of blood were collected.
