Information Access

Why is it necessary to have information access? The Right of Access to Information Act, 2017. Government believes in transparency and the right to have access to information to ensure that the people of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan have improved access to records held by public authorities. If you are not asking then you can’t blame. You have to sit down and actually investigate on the project. Government is accountable to its people. The principal officer of each public body shall, within six months of the commencement of this Act, ensure that the categories of information and record are duly published including uploading over the internet. An individual can request on their own. Or request through several companies that offer this service. The record held by the body is properly maintained. If you need to find out about who got the government job rather than you; then request the information. It is your right. If you do not have resources, then find a library or someone who can assist you in giving you more information about Right To Information Act. As a citizen of Pakistan, it is your responsibility to self-educate yourself on Right To Information. What are you waiting for? Get that information accessed by you right away!
