Indian CIC Orders Delhi to Enhance Assembly Info

11 October 2012

The Central Information Commission has ordered the Delhi assembly to provide more information about its proceedings.

Information Commissioner Annapurna Dixit directed the assembly secretariat to publish laws that pass on its website in Hindi and English and to consider providing live webcasts of assembly proceedings, according to reports in the Times of India and the Hindustan Times.

Disclosure of the text of legislation and more information about committee proceedings also was ordered in response to complaints filed by Satark Nagrik Sangathan, a citizens’ group.

The Delhi government recently informed the CIC that the full texts of bills and assembly proceedings have been put on the website, according to the Hindustan Times.
