No connection between RTI and GSP+

 

The Right to Information Act was not brought in with the intention of regaining GSP+, says Minister for Mass Media Gayantha Karunathilaka. ‘There is no connection of GSP to this,’ he insisted.

RTI will come into effect from February 4th 2017 and citizens can lodge requests for information through RTI procedures. Minister Karunathilaka confirmed that the government replies will start coming in after 14 days as stipulated by the Act.
