About the Webinar
Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, invite you to a National Webinar titled “Right to Information & Good Governance”.
Transparency and accountability in administration is the sine qua non of participatory democracy. Information is the oxygen that any citizen needs to live in the social structure of society and maintain its democratic balance. Right to Information (RTI) in India was developed through Judicial pronouncements thereby distinguishing itself as a Fundamental Right under Article 19 (1) (a).
After a gradual period of time, realizing the importance of this right to know, this right was established in 2005 as a full-fledged statute in the name of “The Right to Information Act, 2005”. This RTI Act became a pioneer tool to the citizens of India for promoting, protecting and defending their right to know.
The webinar aims to discuss the role of RTI in the present government machinery and how it has proved a tool of vital importance in governance.
