Propagating RTI Act through TV serials

Media has done a lot in highlighting importance of the Transparency Act by regularly highlighting news-stories based on CIC-verdicts and RTI responses.

HINDI TV serial ‘Kaali’ on Star Plus should be complimented to be perhaps the first one to incorporate RTI Act in its episodes. Viewers adopt aspects highlighted in TV serials in day-to-day life. Media has done a lot in highlighting importance of the Transparency Act by regularly highlighting news-stories based on CIC-verdicts and RTI responses, that too at a time when Union government failed in its duty to popularise RTI Act amongst masses.
 
Electronic media should feel itself duty-bound by propagating RTI Act through TV serials like has been done in ‘Kaali’. Apart from this, educative TV serials can be produced based on use of RTI Act like was done in an interesting and attractive manner in yesteryears by Doordarshan through a very popular TV serial ‘Rajni’ on consumer-awareness.
