    Bar council to implement RTI Act

    Bar council to implement RTI Act

    Rohtak, February 29
    With a view to ensuring transparency in the functioning of the Punjab and Haryana Bar Council, the Right to Information (RTI) Act will soon be implemented in the council. This was stated by Dr Vijender Singh Ahlawat, newly elected vice-chairman of the council, while addressing a news conference here yesterday.


    He said it sounded strange that the council, which was the biggest licensing and regulating body of lawyers in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh, had not implemented the RTI Act. “Our team has now decided to enforce the act to bring about transparency in the council’s functioning,” he maintained.

    Dr Ahlawat further said that their next priority would be to make the enrolment fee for council membership affordable, especially for new lawyers. “Efforts will be made to cut the expenditure of the council and use the saved amount for the welfare of lawyers,” he said.

    Inderjit,

    Cannot see any "RTI" icon or link on their website:

    Official Site of Punjab & Haryana High Court Bar Association - Home

    Maybe you can file a RTI Application with them to see if they have a designated CPIO/FAA, have implemented Sec 4(1)(b) or not, and name board of CPIO/FAA in their office.

    Please see the sample application to this post:

    Modify it suitable to meet your requirements.
