Direction (Q. 1 - 9) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
Right to Information (RTI) Act, National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, Tribal Rights Act, Gram Nyayalaya Act and proposed National Food Security Act are the milestones in the post-independent history of India. They intend to address issues regarding society, justice and rural poverty. Access to information and its constructive application are two different things. The RTI Act originally aims at discouraging corrupt practices and promoting greater accountability to people in the government. This Act is a step towards creating transparent systems of governance. The Gram Sabha can use it very constructively with its raised legal understanding.
The Rural Employment Guarantee Act can be best implemented only when prospectives are aware of their legal rights. The Tribal Rights Act acknowledges the role of the Gram Sabha. The provisions in the Panchayats (Extension to Scheduled Areas) Act, 1996 enable the tribal society to exercise its traditional rights over natural resources. Effective implementation needs legal awareness. The Gram Nyayalayas Act has come into effect from October 2, 2009, but the concerning government and non-government organisations need to approach Gram Sabha for spreading information on prominent features of the Act.

A.  literacy
