No. You can go for appeal to the appellent officer on the information which you obtained.

Only administrative order of a court comes under the purview of RTI, but yet applicant can not ask WHY in any RTI application either to a court or somewhere else.

Yes, no RTI lies as to judicial decisions. The remedy is in an appeal process review.

 RTI doe snot lie on the mertis of any administrative decision.  Here he intends to challange judicial decision in RTI.

 

It may result in contempt.

You mean to say that one should not challenge an administrative decision through RTI but only through appeal or revision to appropriate court. Right?

RTI is not at all a means to challenge any decision, judicial or administrative. It is only a means to get information from a public authority.

You can not challnge the mertis of the decision even if it is administrative.  You can only seek information and cannot under RTI Act ask why decision "A" is taken and why not "B".

 

Given facts indicate that you want to seek reasons for a decision as you feel (rightly or wrongly) as faulty.   You can filed appeal before Supreme Court or the larger bench as advised by your lawyers after seeing all record.  Unless wanting to run the risk of hauled up fopr contempt you can proceed.
