RTI Workshop for deprived sections
Posted by egovindia on August 1, 2006
A workshop exclusively for the SC/ST people on RTI was arranged at Mangalore by the Dakshina Kannada Police on 30/07/06.
The background is that the district police has been organizing monthly dalit meetings on every last sunday of the month regularly for the last one year mainly to hear the grievances of these people and redress the same to the extent possible.
However during these meetings, mostly problems relating to the other departments were cropping up.
Though the other department officers were requested to attend the meetings, they did not respond positively.
Hence it was felt to empower these people with the RTI so that they can approach these departments more confidently.
Nearly 100 people participated.
