The Attorney General GE Vahanvati on Tuesday opposed in the Delhi High Court the plea to bring his office under the ambit of RTI on various grounds.

"The Attorney General of India has a lawyer-client relationship with the Government and its instrumentalities and in any case, the advice rendered is protected under the law," Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Siddharth Luthra, appearing for the AG, said.

The court was hearing an appeal filed by Delhi-based RTI activist Subhash Chandra Aggarwal against a decision of the Central Information Commission (CIC) holding that the office of Attorney General is not amenable to the Right to Information (RTI) Act.
