    RTI Act to be in school curriculum

    NIZAMABAD: State information commissioner R Dileep Reddy on Wednesday said the state government has decided to introduce a chapter on the RTI Act in fifth and eighth class textbooks.

    Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Dileep, who visited 16 offices to oversee the implementation of the Act, said based on the commission’s recommendations, the government has taken the decision to create awareness among the students about the Act.

    The commission will submit its second year’s recommendations to the government in March. He emphasised the need to create more awareness among the public, especially rural people, on the use of the Act.

    Well they have a chapter on income tax in class 10....

    They can put up a chapter on RTI as a civics lesson and well include a 10 marks question in the exam..

    Why only A P .....CBSE should do it.

    Nice idea though
