CULPRIT is DOPT – DOPT is not authorised to state anything contrary to law.

My dear Arvind,
DOPT has made a error in their web site by stating defination of information, that is contrary to Section 2(f) of the Right To Information Act 2005. They are not authorised to state anything contrary to law on the web site.
This can be challanged in Supreme Court, as DOPT does not have any authority to misinterpret the provisions of RTI Act. There are excellent chances of getting favourable judgement on such PIL.
Cabinet is not a competent authority to ameend RTI Act: only the Parliament has requisite power.
Government has no option but to follow the Act, as passed by the Parliament.
Anything to the contrary, stated in web sites is ILLEGAL.
Should be challenged in a P.I.L. before the Supreme Court.
Only Parliament can amend the RTI Act, not a handful of Ministers.
DOPT is not authorised to give their interpretation, until RTI Act is ammended by the Parliament.
