In order to encourage people to understand societal relevance of the Right to Information Act (RTI)and its nuances, the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) has decided to introduce certificate and diploma courses in the subject. The Central Information Commission (CIC) has extended its support to the university to work out the courses, which will form compulsory part of the training module for all Central Government employees. The Faculty of Public Administration at IGNOU’s School of Social Sciences is brainstorming with experts from CIC on the content and curriculum of the course. Though people are aware of RTI, not many understand the importance of RTI and are not sure about the technicalities, how to frame the questions, how and where to make further appeals and much more. So, IGNOU hopes that the course will attract more people and will be a success.
