No ordnance has been promulgated. Therefore the RTI Act stays as it is.

    Section 30 empowers the Government to “remove difficulties” by issue of gazette notification. No such gazette notification has been issued according to the cabinet decision.

    Therefore the RTI Act stays as it is.

    Only visible “error” seems to be in the web site, where defination of information has not been stated according to the law as it stands today. This can be challanged in the Court, so that the Government comes to the parliament with proposed ammendment, redefining the tem “information” in the Act. At the meantime the “Activist” can continue to make lot of noise, so that law is not ammended.
