Hyderabad : To provide transparent and better services to the people and build its image in the market, Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation has now come up with a new idea of providing online information under the public domain. APIIC Vice Chairman and Managing Director Jayesh Ranjan on Tuesday said that they are adopting innovative ideas of 'Public Private Partnership' (PPP) to create confidence among people.
Addressing a press conference along with an RTI activist Rakesh, who extended cooperation in introducing this PPP model of services for improving implementation of RTI, Jayesh Ranjan said that now they were well equipped to provide online information. He said that the staff, including the Public Information Officers (PIOs) and Assistant PIOs underwent a sensitisation program for two months and are now equipped to provide the details being sought by the people.
"A lot of progress has been made during this training and our staff can now give any information under Right to Information (RTI) Act online or otherwise," he said. He said that he was recommending the State government to adopt a similar system of online services in other departments which would prove handy. Besides updating the information and data required on regular basis, the APIIC is ready to invite suggestions from the people on providing better services.
He said that citizens can find information and data placed online on their website www.apiic.in including Citizen's Charter, minutes of the plot/shed allotment committee meetings held from October 2011, statutory information to be furnished under Sec 4 (1) (b)of the RTI Act 2005, list of MoUs with various companies and much more.
