    I think CPIO & FAA are correct. Through RTI you can only ask for information and not opinions. However, opinions held by Govt on record can be accessed.

    You should consult an advocate for knowing about provisions of law to solve your issue.
    It takes each of us to make difference for all of us.

    as per internation convention people have right to know on anything except three fields which relates to security of country, information of personal nature etc. Law ministry is repository of laws and it is one of its obligation to spread about awareness of law and to educate indians about their rights which include right to to justice .Under the circumstances is it not unfair to deny information on provisions of law to citizens.

    Dear All,
    I know my style is unconventional but it has been successful. In case of seeking opinion on a legal matter, though the issue is subjective, one still reserves the right to seek it. PIOs usually deny it but putting pressure to record it may work. One always gets such legal opinions in file notings which are in public domain. So ask for the file notings and you may succeed in getting to know what the department thinks. I have got a file noting wherein professional tax officers have informed the Finance Minister that giving retrospective effect in tax relief after issuance of Show Cause is legally not possible. Fm endorsed this view and still went ahead and gave retrospective benefit to powerful assessees. Now I intend to take up the matter before the HC as the act is illegal and even parliament does not enjoy powers to write of taxes recoverable however high and mighty the assessees are. Happy information seeking.

    To ask for opinion in the form of notings is only possible in complaint case files but there also CPIO deny it saying that applicants is trying to use RTI fora for redressal of complaint which is also not allowed in RTI Act. So the problem is with limitation imposed in RTI Act
