A one-day workshop on Right to Information (RTI) Act was held her at Sadbhabana Gruha under the auspices of the district administration.
State Information Commissioner Prof Radhamohan, who was the chief guest, urged the officers to provide information to the public whenever they need it.
He said an information officer should be appointed in every department, so that one can get information easily. He cautioned that if an officer does not provide information to the public and harass them, he would be punished and fine would be imposed on him for his delinquency.
The fine may amount to Rs 250 to Rs 25,000, wile the action against him would be quite stringent, Prof Radhamohan warned.
He said awareness meetings should be organised at block and panchayat levels to educate rural people about the information Act.
Among others, district Collector Satyabrata Sahu, Project Director, DRDA, Sitanath Rath, Sub Collector Devendra Singh, ADM Laxmidhar Nayak, many senior citizens attended the workshop.
