Siddhartha Mahila Kalasala set to produce RTI activists soon


Students of Sri Durga Malleswara Siddhartha Mahila Kalasala browsing the modules of the online courses on the RTI Act, in their college in Vijayawada on Thursday.20 students of the college pursue online course on the RTI Act.

Sri Durga Malleswara Siddhartha Mahila Kalasala is all set to achieve yet another distinction soon with a 20-member batch of its students transforming themselves into Right to Information (RTI) activists by pursuing an Online Certificate Course (OCC) on Right to Information Act (RTIA), 2005 offered by the Centre for Good Governance (CGG), Hyderabad. They have been motivated to undergo the courses by city-based RTI activist V. Satyanarayana, who is one of the few people in the State who passed a 15-day RTI OCC in Telugu.. The RTI online courses were launched by the Department of Personnel and Training of Union Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions in association with CGG.

Speaking to The Hindu , College Principal T. Vijayalakshmi said that the RTI was a familiar term these days as its effectiveness as an instrument that promotes transparency and makes government institutions and their officers accountable to the public was realised.

Only a few individuals are able to extract the information as a good number of them fail in complying with the procedures or justifying the purpose of their applications.

The online courses offered by the CGG were extremely useful in learning the basics of the RTIA and then actually putting it to use for the public good, said Mr. Satyanarayana. About 100 students have got enrolled and 20 are currently studying the courses.

The seven-day course is introductory in nature and the 15-day course is an extensive one with a practical orientation, he added.

For registering in the 15-day course, candidates will be required to file an RTI application with any public service delivery authority. The second aspect is the conduct of a disclosure by the public authority concerned under Section 4 (1) (b) and submission of a report on it for the purpose of evaluation.

The level of awareness about these courses was so low that only a few hundred people have applied for them in the entire country and the number of qualified candidates was even smaller, Mr. Satyanarayana said and added that interested ‘whistleblowers’ can access the website http://rtiocc.cgg.gov.in for further information and enrolment.
