    August 3rd, 2006 at 4:27 pm eThere is inconsistency between 2(f){definition of “information”} and 2(i)(iv)( definition of “record- any material produced by a computer or any other device.} Numbering of later appears to be incorrect in the proposed amendment cited above.

    Definition of “Information” includes any material in any form: it is a very comprehensive definition which also includes opinions and advices. File notings contain opinion and advices. How can 2(i)(iv) take away what is given by 2(f)? I feel that draft has been prepared in haste, for reasons best known to the Government.

    In fact, DOPT has committed a basic error in giving wrong definition of “Information” in their web site. Even without any ammendment to RTI Act, file notings stand excluded from disclosure, according to the web site. Some legal experts should examine whether furnishing false information on the web site also attract section 177 of I.P.C.

    Please do not worry about any clerical mistakes or sematics.This is what babus want people to be engaged in while they amend citing disunity among RTI activists.The best solution at the moment is as Arvind has suggested:
    NO AMENDMENTS FOR NEXT THREE YEARS.
