[RTI INDIA] Re: A Minor's Right to Information

Try teaching this kind of voodoo law to a judge like CJ Mukul Mudgal
and see how they respond ! In the case I cited Mr Wadhwa was
apparently a DGP of Police and can be been presumed to know more
law than you.

The Moral: section 22 RTI Act does not repeal any other law. If
there is some glaring contradiction then of course section 22 will
over-ride such other previous law to the extent of the inconsistency.
RTI Act is a general law, there are many special laws (like
Census Act) which deal with info handling and disclosure in their
own ways / domains.
