Sindh govt fails to implement Right to Information law


There has been no progress in the implementation of “The Sindh Transparency and Right to Information Act, 2017” even though a year has passed since its ratification, a local media outlet reported on Tuesday.

Citizens in Sindh can request information from a number of government departments who would be bound to provide it under the law, failing which the responsible officer would be fined 10 per cent of salary.

The Sindh Information Commission was to be constituted in addition to nomination of focal persons and information officers at each government department within a 100 days.

Only the information commission was established this year.
