The National Information Commission (NIC) has urged the public agencies to effectively implement the constitutionally-guaranteed 'Right to Information'. Noting that most of the public agencies monitored in the Province 1 and Madhes Province of late were found not designating Public Information Officers and not adhering to their responsibility to proactively disclose the information, NIC called for the authorities to fully and effectively implement the citizen’s right to information.

After carrying out monitoring of the adherence and enforcement of legal provisions of RT, NIC has drawn a conclusion that the public agencies at province, district, and local levels were pathetic to bring the RTI laws to effect.

Information Commissioner and Spokesperson of the NIC, Kamala Oli Thapa pointed out the need for the federal, provincial, and local governments to put in place proactive measures to enforce RTI provisions.

In order to protect, preserve and adopt RTI as per the Right to Information provision stipulated in the Constitution and RTI Act, 2007, the NIC was established.
