VISAKHAPATNAM: As a part of creating awareness on the Right to Information (RTI) Act, Jana Chaitanya Vedika (JCV), an NGO, will organise an elocution competition on the Act at Vysakhi Jalaudyanavanam on August 20.

The competition will be conducted in association with Lok Satta and Forum for Better Visakha, according to JCV convener K.V.V. Sarma.

The competition, in English/Telugu, will be in five categories: for students up to degree, post-graduation, professionals, employees of the State and Central Governments and others.

In all categories, three first prizes will be given for men and women separately. Names can be registered at chaitanyavedika@yahoo.co.in or by ringing up 5526683/9393325722 or at the Jalaudyanavanam near the Police Commissionerate.

Facilitation counter

The JCV has also set up a facilitation counter at the Jalaudyanavanam to help people file applications under the Act in matters of public interest.

As a part of its activities, it intends to conduct meetings bringing together public information officers and appellate authorities of State and Central Government departments.
