This is one move that the government will find little opposition to. It is considering an ordinance to supercede this month's order of the Central Information Commission bringing political parties under the Right to Information or RTI Act. It is looking at changing the definition of "public authority" in the Act in a way that will exempt political parties. The ordinance, if brought, will be given effect retrospectively from before the date of the CIC 's ruling.
