`RTI Act enhances the role of media'
ADILABAD: Information Commissioner R. Dileep Reddy of the Andhra Pradesh Right to Information (RTI) Commission on Monday said the RTI Act, 2005 did not usurp the media's function to disseminate information on all issues concerning the common man. On the contrary it enhances the role of media in the gamut of dissemination of information, he claimed.
Substantiating his contention here, Mr. Reddy said that the existence of the RTI Act put more responsibility on the media for correct reportage. Mr. Reddy and his colleague Information Commissioner K. Sudhakar Rao were on a visit to Adilabad to review the implementation of RTI Act in Government offices. The RTI Commission wanted the Act to be implemented in all its provisions by June 15.
