Punjab Transparency and Right to information Act, Training workshop for Public

TI Pakistan attended a workshop organized by CPDI in collaboration with Punjab Information Commission in Toba Tek Singh as an observer. The objective of the workshop was to train Public Information Officers about their responsibilities as per Punjab Transparency and Right to Information Act 2013. Under the act, these PIOs are assigned a task to respond to RTI queries in stipulated time period mentioned in law. Although the workshop was particularly arranged for PIOs, out of 26 participants there were only 6 PIOs sent by the public bodies of Toba Tek Singh. The trainer gave them a detailed explanation to the PIOs about the Act. In the end 4 groups were formed who gave individual presentation about the sections of the laws assigned to them.
