The National Information Commission (NIC) has said it had so far taken action against 32 office chiefs for denying information to the information requesters.

At an interaction organized by the NIC and FNJ Kathmandu chapter here Wednesday, Commissioner at NIC, Ratna Prasad Mainali said 32 office chiefs were taken action as they denied citizen's constitutional right to get information. Among them, 12 office chiefs were punished in the last two years alone.

According to him, some 1100 appeals were filed at NIC, complaining about the denial of information by the office chiefs.

Mainali further said NIC was collaborating with the FNJ chapter to sensitize people about the value of the right to information across the country.

On the occasion, FNJ General Secretary Roshan Puri said only mentioning RTI as fundamental rights in the constitution is not enough but it should be made a concern of the common people.

FNJ central member Shantaram Bidari viewed RTI as imperative to building good governance.
