The Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting will launch a series of Public Information Campaigns (PICs) called ''Info Expo'' from next month in Tamil Nadu focusing on programmes of the UPA Government, a PIB release said today.

The campaign with the central theme of ''Empowering India'' will help various government departments and organisations to fulfill their commitment towards proactive disclosure of information about their policies and programmes under the Right to Information Act the release said.

Six campaigns were planned primarily in the districts in which the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) had come into force.

Various media units of the Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting including Directorate of Field Publicity, Directorate of Advertising and Visual Publicity, Song and Drama Division, Publications Division, Doordarshan and All India Radio would participate in the PICs, the release added.

    Sir,
    Proactive disclosure is the basic foundation of the RTI act.Out of proactive disclosure (having 17 manuals),hardly 3-4 need very serious consideration–duties and powers of the employees,index list of categories of records held by the office complete as well as in electronic form.

    So I request these three points to be taken seriously in proactive disclosure.Till date,there are very few offices which have prepared satisfactory proactive disclosure on their websites.
