Newsupdates, Activities & Advocacy

  • Former Higher Education Secretary, Mr B K Chakraborty and former Legislative Assembly Secretary D K Das Chowdhury have been sworn in as the Chief Information Commissioner and State Information Commissioner of Tripura respectively.
  • The Opposition Congress has criticised the Left Front government for allegedly handling the implementation of the RTI Act 2005 in a partisan manner. Opposition leader Ratan Lal Nath said the State Government by appointing a State Chief Information Commissioner and a State Information Commissioner, both with allegiance to the ruling CPI(M) party, had violated provisions of the new Act.
  • The Tripura Government invited CHRI to conduct a one-day workshop for Government officials in Agartala on 8 September. The workshop was attended by the Chief Secretary, several Principal Secretaries and between 80-90 officials. This workshop has led to the formulation of a time bound Action Plan for implementation.
