Odisha brings RTI to Panchayats - common services centres to accept RTI applications
In order to achieve greater transparency in governance, the state government of Odisha has moved a step further by providing facilities concerning Right to Information (RTI) at Panchayat level.
The services regarding RTI can be availed from various common services centres at panchayat level. The services provided by these common services centres include downloading of RTI application forms, sending online applications, e-payment, checking status of RTI applications and accessing suo motu disclosures under Section 4 of the RTI Act.
RTI central monitoring mechanism provided at www.rtiodisha.gov.in will be integrated with these centres to facilitate the service. Besides RTI related services, information about government policies and programmes will also be disseminated at these centres.
