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.
