Any amendment to the law is subject to judicial review
I believe that, laws and amendments to it, are drafted by intellectuals, especially lawyers of the political parties, based on the overall intent of the majority (especially leaders) of the members of the Parliament.
Therefore, these intellectual lawyers need to be made aware, as a matter of prevention than as a matter of cure, that any amendment is subject to judicial review, and that such an amendment will have to weather the test of court of laws, and as such the said amendment may be an irretrievable step posing a potential source of embarrassment, in case it does not stand the test of an open (not closed) court of law.
As such the court of laws may be a last resort, but a peek into what lies in store in the future serves as a note of caution to these intellectual lawyers that they may not have the last word by amending the RTI Act by virtue of their access to legislators, but active civil society members may take them to a court of law whereby these amendments will indeed have to weather the court of laws.
