The National Conference on Right to Information (RTI) organised by the National Information Commission (NIC) concluded on Friday with a seven-point declaration paper. Participants during the conference called for additional “information dissemination right” along with the right to seek information guaranteed by Article 27 of the constitution. They also sought to mention “individual” rather than “citizen” in the article. NIC Chief Commissioner Krishna Hari Banskota called for economic and administrative freedom to the NIC for its institutional development. The conference has also decided to organise awareness programmes in all 75 districts on RTI.
