RTI Act to be translated in 8 tribal languages
In order to give the tribals their right to know about the basic things through Right to Information Act (RTI), the State Information Commission (SIC) has decided to translate the basic aspect of the existing act in eight major tribal languages of the State. These languages include Ho, Munda, Sanathali, Kui, Kubhi and Desia. SIC has planned to go to the door steps of the community leaders and tribal people's representatives starting sarpanch to MLA and MP and make an all out effort to educate them on the Act.
It has also planned to organise a "Soochna Mahasabha" in this connection. Steps would be taken to educate the officials of the Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA), 17 micro projects, Adivasi schools and Kanyashram on the importance of imparting information to the common people. They will also be educated about the law and their responsibilities in this connection.
