Mizoram To Have Information Commissioners under RTI Act

February 28, 2006

Mizoram information minister R Lalthangliana today said the state would soon have a Chief Information Commissioner and two state Information Commissioners to make the Right to Information Act (RTI) effective.

Inaugurating a three-day multi-media campaign on RTI at Lengpui, the minister said "The finance department has formalised sanctions for the posts of the information commissioners".

The minister said the state was awaiting a cabinet approval for establishing the state information commission, adding that already 20 departmental appellate authorities, 130 state public information officers and 226 assistant public information officers have been appointed.

The function, chaired by IMPCC chairman and DDK director C Lalrosanga and attended by DFP joint director general Laldingliana Sailo and other government officials, attracted a huge crowd of primary and middle school students and a song and drama troupe from Guwahati.

The multi-media campaign will contine at Sairanga and Rangvamual areas tomorrow and the day after.
