Mr. Shailesh Gandhi has taken up the responsibility as CONVENOR of NCPRI

2nd July 2006

This is to inform you that Mr Shailesh Gandhi has taken up the responsibility of convenorship of the NCPRI from 1 July 2006. His email ID is shailesh2[at]vsnl(dot)com. I am sure he will inform you soon of his other contact details.

Shailesh is one of our most distinguished RTI activists who has contributed enormously to the implementation of the Maharashtra RTI Act, and to the formulation, the passing and now the use and monitoring of the national RTI Act. He has been a member of the NCPRI working committee for the last two years.

A product of IIT Bombay, he was an industrialist for many years but has recently liquidated his business interest and decided to dedicate most ofhis time to the cause of transparency. In Shailesh we have a rare combination of long experience, inexhaustible energy and unswerving commitment to the right to information.

I am convinced that under his convenorhip the NCPRI will become invigorated and take up many of the challenges that ensuring a universalised access to the right to information poses.
